To get better pictures of your crochet items:
- Take photo during daylight under the shade either morning (9-10 am) of late afternoon. I mostly take my pictures at around 4 - 5 pm utilizing the light coming from my window.
- use reflector as above. To make one, cut a cardboard paper about 60 x 40 inches, cover it with aluminum foil (crush the foil and gently flatten it before wrapping it into the cardboard).
- use a clean white art paper to place your item.
- remove anything else which are not part of the subject of your photo.
Whether you are using a sophisticate camera or a mobile phone camera, the above tips will help making your photos look more appealing.

This kuffah was taken solely with the light source coming from the window. Look at the soft shadow on the left and the clearer view of the stitches which would have been too dark without the use of reflector.
I do not have a sophisticated studio like a pro has. My "studio" is a corner of my son's room which I temporarily occupy while he is in the college. I am grateful to my husband who support me and giving me access to a Canon 5DMarkII. Saying that, under the right light, my iPhone takes better pictures sometimes. Here is the set up of my photo shoot looks like. No matter what kind of camera I am using I always try to use a tripod or a pile of books, a beanie bag, anything to keep your camera steady. Camera shake will caused your photos blurry.
