Photographing Green

I’ve been spinning fiber in the most gorgeous heathered shades of green this week, and you would never know it.

I’ve tried photographing it for you half a dozen different ways, and not only does not a single one come remotely close to the correct color…

None of them are even close to the same color as in any of the other pictures.

It’s bizarre. What is it about green that’s apparently so impossible to photograph?

It’s a shame because so much of what I make is, in fact, green. Anyone more skilled with the camera have some advice?

  1. That’s the K-P Wool of the Andes, right? I’ve spun that color before (and the red and blue as well) and I know exactly what you mean. There are so many beautiful shades of green in the fiber, but it is very difficult to capture it in a photograph. Your bobbin of singles looks lovely.
