Photographing Needlepoint with Jennifer Reifenberg

We got some great tips on photographing needlepoint from Jennifer Reifenberg. I have been getting photos on cloudy but bright days but need to get a white board to help get rid of shadows. Also, I need to get a white and black matte background fabric depending on what I’m photographing.

Photo taken a few years ago.

Today’s photo during class.

So, I can already see an improvement in my photos.

You can get photographic backgrounds in photography shops for your photographic needs. They come in different sizes and are non reflective and have other qualities I can’t remember that go into professional photography…black, white, green and others…my research dates back to the wedding photography so decades have passed, Ba!
But you’ll love the results!
No fabric will come close. Believe me, I’ve tried tons!
I could list failures of macro photography a mile long that photographic boards solved painlessly!

I used black or white art board when I was photographing products for my website. It’s cheap, has a matte surface, and comes in a few different sizes.
