Behind The Scenes at the Knits Photoshoot

Feb 23, 2009

Note from Sandi: One of the things that makes Interweave Knits special is the photography! Lush with detail and alive with ambience, each photo seems to invite us to crawl right inside the magazine. Today, Eunny Jang, editor of Interweave Knits, takes us behind the scenes of the Knits Spring 2009 photoshoot:



Knits shoots are always a lot of fun. For me, shooting Knits is about giving you a way to see how these items could work in your life—the mood a sweater might put you in, the most flattering way to tie that wrap, unexpected ways to wear an accessory. It’s glossied up a little for magazine photography, but we keep things grounded in Real Life: We shoot in houses and restaurants, backyards and gardens, and use friends and colleagues as models. Occasionally, a shirt or jacket one of us is wearing is the perfect thing for showing off a knit—and it ends up on a model for the shot.

But nothing can give you a feel for how our shoots work like a real peek behind the scenes can.  Click through for a gallery of candids from the first day of the shoot for the Spring 2009 issue of Knits (in the magazine, these became the Modern Floral and Sideways stories)—enjoy!

This was a wonderful refresher for me today after a tough work day. I really appreciate all that you do at Interweave Press to enhance knitter's lives. I find the behind the scenes looks fascinating because I had no idea what went into it. And now onto my knitting....P.S. I've never been able to stick with one creation only to the finish-it's a fluid process- and now i know I'm not the only one!

Not about the photo shoot. I just had to let Sandy know that I'm with her. We are on vacation and right now I am knitting--a vest, a great pair of stripped socks, a new pattern for a dishcloth, a hat for a soldier and a lap robe for Hospice. Depends on the mood I'm in which project I pick up.

Very cool, indeed. You've definitely got some "Cross-hobby" interest going here. I had to show the shoot details to my camera-enthusiast husband. Who knew Knitting Daily truly has something for everyone?

My name is Rosemary and I love to crochet. I have been sickt he past two weeks with bronchitis and while sitting have made 3 darling cloche hats for friends I'm looking now for the pattern shown on today's episode for the crochet granny square afghan??? I'm brand new to this site, and maybe not doing something right.
