mystereIf you’ve seen the new Twist Collective that went up mid-November, then you might have noticed one of the secret projects I’ve been working on. I was honoured to do the photography for the Faneuil Hall editorial in this latest issue. (My first professional shoot where I was the photographer!)

I really love what Twist Collective is doing with their releases. I think that they’ve made some great choices for styling and presentation. Having worked behind the scenes, I can assure you that none of the sweaters are pinned or taped in any way. The designs are all just that good that they work perfectly just as they are.

We were aiming for a Mary Tyler Moore meets the Sartorialist type feel, which I think we hit.

My Ravelry queue has grown immensely since the release of this Twist Collective, that’s for darn sure.

Some of my faves from the shoot:

I don’t know about you, but I think that looking through the camera lens with the eye of a knitter really helps capture some of the important details of the designs while still giving that portrait feel. This was so much fun to work on, thank you Twist!

    Congrats on the photo shoot – the photos are beautiful! Thanks for letting us know that the garments are not pinned or taped…I wish that was more the norm.

    Beautiful photography! Must have been a little nervewracking, but you’ve done a wonderful job. My favorite photo is Bright Star, with the model’s gorgeous smile, her hair against the blurred background and that fabulous sweater. Great knitting detail.

    You did a great job and it was so fun to see some of the behind the scenes stuff! I agree totally that having a knitter behind the camera can make a huge difference, it’s definitely something you can see in the shots.
