Need scarf advice, pleaseeeee

Ok, here's the deal. I love to make scarves, seriously.

I love making them, using them, giving them to friends and family. I just love making them. I love figuring out different patterns to make them, the widths, the lengths, everything.

I use to take pics of them on my dressing dummy, but I had to leave that behind.

I have tried taking pics of them on me with a triipod, but those don't come out right.

I have tried taking pics of them laying out, but I'm not sure that's the best way to do it.


I have 7 scarves sitting here because I'm not sure the best way to photograph them. Not to mention the numerous ones that are works in progress.

I'm always experimenting myself. I will usually get one on a mannequin, one all spread out, and at least one close up of the stitches. Sometimes I use other props but if you go to crazy then it just distracts from the scarf itself. I don't think there is one perfect way. You just have to find what works for you.

Before I got my mannequin I put them on pretty padded silk hangers. Not perfect but okay.

I'd use a mannequin also. Other way is to spread them and photograph, that shows scarf totally. Use some other items, leave scarf to lay down on a pillow, let wind blow it in a tree, tie a scarf to a doll...

I think they would look really cool hanging from tree branches. I know it probably sounds crazy but that's the vision I got. Would look especially nice if you had some trees with fall foliage.
