Reader Question: What is the best way to display the quilt to take pictures for on a web site?
Answer: I asked a friend of mine who is a photographer and he suggested the following points for photographing a quilt:
1) hang the quilt on a wall so that it is very flat
2) is possible, find a wall that is free of any other distractions, and has good lighting, preferable natural window light
3) in addition to a photo of the entire quilt, also take some close up photos of individual squares so people can see the close up detail & stitching.
4) Avoid using camera flash if possible
