What are your “Tips and Tricks” regarding photographing your projects? nbsp; Gateway to all Tips & Tricks Topics  Original Blog Posting8/9/11 Last week, I asked you how much effort you put into the photos of your projects. To respond, the options were:1) I just “get ‘er done” … snap, snap, snap2) I at least clean off the workbench before taking the photo—I try to take a good, clear, uncluttered photo3) I go all out – I plan the background for the pho...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #867: Pretty as a Picture

632 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

One thing that I love about doing design work is that there are so many aspects of the process to consider. In addition to drawing the patterns on the computer, the projects need to be cut, assembled and finished in order to make sure that everything was done properly. Once that is finished, the actual instructional pattern packets need to be created, which include clear and concise directions on how others can replicate the project easily. This often includes not only step-by-step photogra...

1166 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 15 comments »

One thing that I like so much about my job is that there is such a great variety of steps that need to be done in order to keep everything running smoothly. The saying that “necessity breeds invention” comes to mind when I am in the midst of doing so many of these other tasks. For someone such as myself, who is trying to make a living on my designing abilities, learning all the different aspects of what it takes to not only design patterns, but to produce and market them is a ...

Photography #1: A Photography Studio In The Shop

2403 days ago by Todd A. Clippinger | 24 comments »

The final act… Buffing the final coat of finish is the moment of birth for a project. After that it is carefully wrapped and delivered to start its’ life with family, friend, or client. One part of the woodworking process that most of us don’t figure in is the photography. I can tell you from experience that this a very important part of furniture making. It is not an option if you are planning on doing woodworking and furniture as a business, be it full or part time....

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #77: A Day of Learning

1442 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

Yesterday turned out to be a day of learning. For me, those are always good days. I had originally planned to take some quick pictures of the new project and one that my partner was just finished with and then spend the rest of the day drawing and working on the next one. That just wasn’t how it turned out to be. One of the best thing about being your own boss and keeping on schedule is that it allows you the flexibility to deviate from that schedule most of the time. At least f...
