You may notice today that we have a new, needle felting inspired header! Last week, I shared pictures of the prep work that went into the needle felting story in the September issue. We talked about doing letters of some sort in the story but they never made it in, so it was really fun to work on them for the blog! To stay on theme, I thought I would post a couple shots from the actual photo shoot.
A lot of our shoots are done with digital cameras these days, which means we get to see the final outcome of the shots right there as we work. When working on film, you have to take a series of polaroids to get the lighting, props & setting just right before you take the final shots. Frank Heckers shot the needle felting story on film. I shot these pictures of his polaroids on digital. It's a mixed up, crazy world.
Once we are happy with how all the pieces are coming together, we trim down our favorites and tape them up so we can see how we're coming along. As you can see, we had a lot to chose from for the scarf shot.

Here's how the final turned out. I think you'll agree it was all worth it.
