I do not see myself as a good photographer at all.
I tend to go for quantity for quality. If I take enough photos at least one of them is bound to turn out ok. :)

Taking photos of denim is tricky. Especially if you want the photos to be "true" to the denim and show them as they are.

Here are a list of things I do find important.

- Make sure you have a background that "works".
- Make sure you have a good source of light. I prefer sunny and cloudy weather where the clouds dampen the light a bit. Direct sunlight can sometimes be hard to work with and can create weird shadows and overly bright areas.
- Use a camera and not your phone.
- Get a decent camera lens.
- Use a tripod (I do not own one) or use something to put your camera on ie wall, chair, postbox or similar.
- Use a ladder or a chair to stand on when taking photo of your jeans laying on the ground.
- If you take photos indoor use a flash. Preferably a flash that you can turn around so that it is pointed to the ceiling so that the flash light can bounce from the ceiling and down to the floor and jeans. If you have the flash pointed directly at the jeans and floor the result is alot "harder" and can create some weird shadows.
- Get Lightroom or something similar to edit the photos afterwards.
Depending on what is on the photo the jeans may tend to be more blue or green or red in its tint then reality is. Therfore I always try to get the white balance right. I do suck at lightroom and most often then not I press the auto edit button. Then I have to drag down the brightness and contrast and sometimes the other options a little. As the pictures most often then not becomes overly bright when I press the "auto" button. Then I change the colour balance to make sure that the white is actually white and not white with a blue tint or yellow tint.

A sufu member cmboland wrote a good guide a couple of years ago that I really liked.


Last note.
Try to experiment with different backgrounds and light settings and for that matter camera settings.

My Equipment:
- Canon EOS 50D
- Canon EF-S 15-85mm f/3,5-5,6 IS USM (My main lens)
- Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM
- Canon EF 100mm f/2,8L IS USM Macro
- Canon Speedlite 430EX II

@nizzel55 you know you've made it in life when a TaoBao seller is using your photo to peddle their produce. ;D


HAHA that made my day.

Thanks for the link.

Bought my second IHSH76 3 years ago (sold my old XL to twin)
Going through my old pictures I noticed that I had a picture from 2014 09 26 when the shirt was sparkling new with only 2 days of wear.
Thought it would be cool with a comparison picture of it on the same date and place three years later :)
So I took some photos yesterday.
Left side: 2014-09-26 2 days of wear 0 soak 0 machine wash
Right side: 2017-09-26 241 days of wear 3 soaks 1 machine wash

It has been a while since I took any photos what so ever.
My main lense needs broke a while back and needs repairs.

But a week ago after I had given some of my shirts a wash the sun hit my 76. It sparkeled in the sunlight and was so beautiful.

I had to take some photos :)

Congratulations @louisbosco !

What!!! I am speechless. This really  made my day.

It has been two fun years. I would not have an easy time picking out winners from all the beautifully faded pairs.

Thank you.
