Last weekend I happened upon a food photography workshop at the Roundhouse.

I thought it would help my knitting photography, as both food and fibre subjects are small, close, and need to look delicious.

Friends asked me: Did I learn a lot? Well, no, but I find that getting better at photography, for me, is a slow process punctuated by the occasional ‘aha!’ moment. The ‘aha!’ from this workshop: the five-way reflector/diffuser. I ran straight to Dressew and bought some white nylon for $6 to make my own.
