some of Jenni's favorite photo tips for getting good shots.
Lighting: Turn off your flash! It is very best to use natural lighting. An ideal place would be in a room with a north-facing window or a covered patio. Avoid direct sunlight—indirect lighting will give you a softer, more natural look.
Getting it all in: Frame your quilt with a little extra space around it. (A plain background is best.) Some point-and-shoot cameras have a shift from the viewfinder to the lens, so you'll want to be sure to capture the entire quilt. Then, step forward and get some close-up shots of the details you're especially proud of.
