A couple of days ago during the late evening before it became nighttime light I pulled out some of my fabrics. It was also somewhat overcast with a slight threat of rain! I set them up, set up the camera on the tripod and quickly started snapping. This is the result of that "photo session". I was rather pleased as the colors looked the same in the pictures as the fabrics do in real life. Previously pictures that I had taken were in bright sunny daylight and always trying to remember not to cast a shadow on the subject. So I will have to remember to take my shots in overcast type lighting.
All of these fabrics are 100% cotton and hand dyed by myself. The method used to obtain this patten is called arashi, which translates to storm. Fabric is wrapped around a pole, scrunched up and dipped in a dye bath. I can be a little time consuming but it is well worth the effort.
