My papa is awesome! He taught me many wonderful things, and essential "life skills"...
like "measure twice, cut once"
and "if it is worth doing, it is worth doing well".
He let me watch him build things, and when I was able, he let me help him build things, and then he helped me build the things I thought up!
He also had an awesome camera!
I remember watching some of his photo shoots, like my baby sister sitting on the floor in front of a mirror, or using multiple exposures to get Christmas lights just right. Now my daughter owns this vintage camera and teaches photography on line! She got the photographer gene! Check out her class schedule here.
So, dad, this blog post is for you!
In order to be able to photograph my sewing projects as I work on them, I built a light tent.
|PVC pipe and fittings, 1/2 inch|
|36", 24", 18" and one piece left over|
|Starting with the top frame on the floor; adding side posts|
|One side frame complete|
|Second side frame and back rail|
|Turned right side up|
|White cloth for light diffuser|
|Set up and ready to photograph the baby blanket|
|Arranging the blanket|
I did not glue the PVC frame together, I have some extra pieces now so I can make it different sizes.
|Shorter front rail with T for lamp clamp stabilizer|
|Extra lamp to add light from above subject.|
