GALE ZUCKER • SHE SHOOTS SHEEP SHOTS
PHOTOGRAPHY FOR KNITTERS
TWO DAYS OF PHOTOGRAPHY
amidst the sheep, lambs, goats, hens & yarn !
A special hands-on digital photography workshop weekend for anyone who wants to improve their images of fiber related projects, and the world around them, while enjoying the beauty of a working fiber farm.
Juniper Moon Farm is a no-kill fiber farm located in lovely Central Virginia. We are home to a flock of spoiled Cormo sheep, way too many Angora goats and some very sassy laying hens. This spring, the farm will be blessed with a handful of baby goats and a whole passel of lambs. It's a magical place, and we think you'll leave here a little bit in love with Juniper Moon Farm.
Topics to be covered:
- Photographing yarn, fiber, and finished objects, both on & off people.
- Looking at colors and light, choosing settings,and backgrounds.
- Photographing sheep , goats, people & scenery while we explore the setting.
- Simple lighting tricks and solutions to fiber & knitwear photography problems.
- Optimizing your images once they’re out of the camera and into a blog page or website.

••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••Testimony from workshop participants:
" A workshop with Gale is perfect for any knitter who wants to improve the
quality of her photographs. A knitter herself, Gale "gets it" when it comes
to displaying and photographing hand knits. Gale's enthusiasm for
photography and knitting is infectious and the result is a workshop full of
instruction, tips and techniques. Mostly, though, it's just fun!" - Carole of Carole Knits blog
"Gale shared her professional expertise and some very concrete tips on how to make our photos pop. It was fun to hear the back stories on some of her wonderful photos and get ideas for different ways to showcase our knitting. We had a chance to experiment for ourselves, and since taking the class, I have used her tips for my personal photography. Thanks, Gale!" - Susan Rainey, of The Rainey Sisters blog
“Photography for knitters was such a fantastic class. I wished the class were a week instead of a day! Gale is knowledgeable, patient and has a great sense of fun. I learned so much, and would love to take a follow up. Your blog or Ravelry page will never be the same!” - Mary Lou Egan, The Yarnery, St Paul MN
