Earlier this week I went to visit my parents after a couple of months.
When a visit like this takes place, me and my Mom always share the results of our current crafting adventures with each other. Thanks to this happy tradition I was allowed to see the knitted sweaters and vests that my Mom managed to finish during the months of this past winter. I have to admit, that sight left me in a state of complete amazement for quite a while… there were so many items and they were so… well… beauuutiful!
To make her sweaters, Mom almost never uses patterns and her knitted or crocheted products are usually the result of her own imagination.
Would you like to see these beauties in some more detail? Well, I will be happy to show them to you then…
I love this color.
Mom fell in love with vests like this one.
Oh, how I love all these details. They are truly fascinating to me. I could study her work for hours.
As far as I can remember, Mom has been really great with various pattern and shape combinations.
The back parts of her sweaters tell their own stories. They usually look more or less different from the front parts.
And again, the back side of the vest shown above.
I like this one too. It looks so comfy.
And this I call a masterpiece. It took me quite some time to figure out how it had been done.
The back side – just wonderful, in my humble opinion.
And this is the last one I snapped. Just waiting to be finished. Love the choice of yarn. My Dad chose it, as I’ve heard… great job, Dad :).
I hope you enjoyed this little presentation. I myself am looking forward to many more knitted and crocheted items from my beloved Mom!
HDR stands for high dynamic range. And that, let me tell you, is a truly magical thing.
It works like this – you take a series of images with your camera, each shot with a different exposure from darkest to lightest (there’s a special setting in you camera to achieve that.)
Then you open these images in a program which is able to combine the best parts of the three overexposed, underexposed and balanced shots to create a dramatic image with beautiful shadowing and highlights.
Isn’t that idea just amazing?
I love it!
What I especially adore is the contrast and detail which these pictures seem to have and which I could not really achieve before.
I came across this technique some time ago, but just recently I got myself a software which helps to make this kind of magic happen (there are quite a few in the market, I chose Photomatix; you can find some really cute examples of HDR photography on their site.)
Me and HDR, this is just the beginning of our journey together. And I am so looking forward to that adventure!
I made a few more pictures to play with this new software thingy… here they are…
