Photographing Your Makes
How your designs are portrayed visually online and in print will make a huge impact on the success or failure of the pattern. With fewer opportunities to get up close and personal with design samples at shows or in yarn stores, photos take on an even bigger role.
This course will cover the basic principals of taking, editing, storing and exporting photos for print and online publications.
You don't need a DSLR or other high end camera, a phone camera will be fine.
This course can be bought individually for £75 or as part of our Self Publishing Bundle with Photographing Your Makes, Lay Out and Design and Charting Crochet Designs for £250. To get the discount, simply add all 4 courses to your checkout.
