Give me a week or two to go absolutely cuckoo.

Hopefully soon I will have my own site devoted to photography.  It's what I plan on doing with myself full time, eventually.  Anyway.  Ever since I started knitting I've been obsessed with yarn.  The color, the texture, the way it drapes, how it looks knit up or loose.

I want to include some of these shots in the "Fine Art Photography" section of my website, but I'm not sure if anyone other than me and a handful of knitters in the world actually care about pictures of yarn.

In any case, here are some of the most recent shots:










What do you think?  Interesting?  Not Interesting?  Would you buy something like this?

I wouldn't buy them, but they are excellent shots! You should consider contacting yarn companies about photographing for them  Grin

Really amazing photography!!

I can see these pictures maybe in a small "coffee table" art book or framed in one large frame together. They would be a great gift for the knitter or crocheter.

Those are really amazing. I love the green one. They would be great in a series in a craft room, or wherever. I would buy them!

I'd buy them too!  I'm a little obsessed with looking at pictures of yarn and staring at my own yarn while I'm knitting.  Cheesy

I like these a lot also. I love the more textured ones, they are beautiful. I don't knit, but I do enjoy looking at and touching yarn and textiles.

Oooh, those are nice.  My husband got a new camera and tripod for our last vacation, but I haven't tried them out yet.  I got a macro lens I'm dying to try with it.  Yarn makes a great subject!

You should make postcards or notecards out of them.  I would consider buying a set.  They're beautiful photos!

hercuteness, I really love the third and the fourth one down.  They both have some depth, and the fourth one reminds me of a pic my husband took of a sleeping snake.  I had never thought about photographing yarn before (I enjoy my camera very much!).  I think there would be a definite niche market for it, but I also think that good art crosses all borders, and these photos are good!
