Knitting & Crochet Blog Week: Day 2

Yesterday I discovered the Knitting and Crochet Blog Week project, and decided to take part in it!  Every day for one week, a topic is posed to knitting and crochet bloggers for them to answer and interpret.  It's meant to challenge you to be more creative, in terms of blogging and your preferred craft, and it sounds like so much fun!  Unfortunately I discovered it a day late, so today is my first post.

Photography Challenge Day!
Today challenges you to be creative with your photography, and get yourself in with the chance to win the photography prize. Taking interesting photographs in this instance isn't about flashy cameras or a great deal of technical know-how, it's about setting up a story or scene in a photograph and capturing something imaginative. Your photograph(s) should feature something related to your craft, so that might be either a knitted or crocheted item, yarn, or one of your craft tools. 

I struggled for a while with this - even though I've been a photographer for almost five years, I found it really difficult to come up with a story that I could tell about my knitting in a picture.  Telling a story in my photos is a huge passion of mine, and try to do it for every one, but the difference with all of those is that I just happened to be documenting someone else's story; I was never the one coming up with a story.  After looking through endless other posts on this topic with creative pictures, I felt like there was no way in hell I could ever come up with something as witty or creative as them.  But as I sat down at my computer earlier to think on it some more, this idea came to me.  I'm not sure if a GIF is technically allowed in the competition, but I felt it was the only way to really express the idea I had.  Oh well!

Made for each other.
I'll be back tomorrow with another post for this series.  If you're interested in seeing the other photography posts that were made today, simply Google the tag "3KCBWDAY2" !  If you really love my photo and want to nominate it for the contest, you can do so here!  And don't forget about my giveaway - there's only one day left!  xx
