Photographing my quilts is always the final step before I can say 'this quilt is finished', and its a step for which I always require Phil's help. Our system for taking photos involves dragging a large white board out of the shed and leaning it against the outside wall of the shed - we get good lighting there! Using metal hooks we hook the quilt (via its rod) onto the board, giving a good background against which to take the photos. (It is important to have a plain, neutral background, with even lighting). And Phil always takes care of loose threads and fluff (he thinks I don't do a good enough job :)). Yesterday we got this done just before the rain set in, thankfully!
