I’m rushing off to work at the store this morning, but I wanted to share some photos with you! My new pattern collection has a title, and it is the Map Collection. I rented a lens this week to shoot the photos with my friend Jasmine as the model, and whew, I love this lens! I don’t know that I love it enough to buy it (it’s pretty huge, heavy and not super versatile) but I would totally rent it again. Headshots has good rental deals.
It’s a Nikon 105mm f/2.8 macro lens, and I just love it. It’s great for when you need a little room between you and your subject, but also close up for really details shots. It’s very fast and sharp as well.
The Map Collection will be out very soon (it’s e-book only, not a printed book) – here are a few previews from our photoshoot!
Linehan Road Hat
Ackert Hook Hat
Oooh! Looking good! Can’t wait to see more details of the whole collection.
The Sigma 105mm macro is a workhorse lens, too, and almost half the price of the Nikon. Mine’s been knocked around for many years of photojournalism, and although the auto zoom is starting to sound a little strained, it still works just fine. Just in case you want to know. I have no idea what lenses rent for, or how often you need it.
Have never knit with beads, but that lineham hat is making me want to learn. Can’t wait to see the whole collection!
can’t wait to see your collection of new patterns!
Can’t wait to see what else is in there! Looks amazing so far!
You’re right, that lens makes beautiful pictures and put your patterns in a great light!
Oh, I am very much liking the look of the Ackert Hook Hat!
How exciting for you & for us –
Really looking forward to viewing your
