11 AM & 1:30 PM “Take Better Quilt Photos NOW!” by Meg Cox

meg_black_white_quilt-450x370More than ever, quilters need to know how to take clear, well-composed photographs of their quilts for blogs and social media, to enter contests, and to simply document their work. Many more people will see your quilts in a photo than in person, so why not take the trouble to show them at their best? Meg explained the different requirements for formal quilt photos versus social media snapshots, sharing photos of celebrity quilters and their tips and tricks. She provided specifics about things like lighting and free software to resize digital photos.

The iconic location ( think Eifel Tower, Great Pyramids, Niagara Falls, North Pole, London) can be either appliqued or pieced as an exact depiction of the icon, or an abstract interpretation.
