So...this was sparked by my desire to see exactly what I could do with a photo taken by my Toshiba Netbook's webcam. And also by the fact that when I went looking for a tutorial on this subject to share with someone, and I couldn't find ANYTHING useful.
Anyway, as an admin of several groups, I've come across the issue many times of poorly taken photos being submitted and subsequently rejected. The art itself is just fine...but the photo itself seems to scream, "I don't care enough about my art to put any effort into photographing and/or editing it."
And please don't give me the "I have no money for nice things" excuse. As you can see from this tutorial, I was able to cobble together a decent image (although a bit on the small side) with just a handful of relatively cheap supplies readily available in most households.
I imagine this tutorial could...feasibly...be applied to camera phone photos, too...but it's so much harder to NOT get a blurry shot when your phone is hovering in your constantly-moving hand. Yes, that's a scientific fact - look it up! [link]
Anyway, I hope that someone out there finds this tutorial at least mildly helpful. Oh, and don't forget to DOWNLOAD for full-view.
EDIT - 7/16/12 - I redid some of the spacing for easier reading, added some info in Step 2, and fixed a couple of typos.
PLEASE NOTE: Although my tutorial says the webcam photos are "actual size" - they won't appear actual size on your screen unless you actually click "Download". Just saying...
You guys are free to use this brush; all i ask is... Fave this deviation if you download it Link back to this brush if you use it on any of your deviations or work If possible, I'd like comments and suggestions <3 but I know that takes a little bit more effort to do.
If you guys create a picture using my brushes I would love to see them! I hope you guys enjoy these brushes
-- Check The Time Tutorial -- second tag Tutorial i made was made for delta visions pack but because delta visions going down i thought why not to post it for every one can enjoy it. so hope it will be help full, enjoy
So, I'm sure I've seen something like this around before, but I figured I would make my own version with my little tips and tricks that I've found for photographing crafts (I'm by no means an expert, mind you!) since I was asked by a fellow crafter how to make one. I was also incredibly bored and this was a good way to kill time and help someone at the same time!
Let me know if anything is unclear! Argh, colors are ugly and photo quality is bad. I was sewing in the dark. I'll fix it later. I just hope someone can use it. Note me with any deviations of shorts/jeans you've made from this tutorial, and I'll feature them here!
