The Looms of re:loom

re:loom

It was a tremendous honor to be able to photograph the weavers of re:loom, while at their weaving workplace… the Weave House. Here are some detail shots of the looms I took as I walked around and observed the Weave House. All rugs are made from upcycled materials that have been donated. All proceeds go to the non-profit organization, Initiative for Affordable Housing; an organization that provides jobs and affordable housing to homeless and low-income individuals. Check out theΒ re:loomΒ online store! Just launched!… great product, for an even greater cause. πŸ™‚ There might even be a few photos you recognize πŸ˜‰

THANK YOU FOR TAKING THE TIME TO VISIT AND VIEW MY BLOG.

AS ALWAYS, PLEASE FEEL FREE TO LEAVE ANY AND ALL FEEDBACK.

PEACE, LOVE UNTIL MY NEXT BLOGGY-BLOG POST, DEAR FELLOW BLOG-READIN’ FRIENDS. πŸ™‚

    • Thank you so much! So glad I could take you down memory lane… I took weaving at the camp I went to every summer for 7 years. There is nothing better than creating with your own two hands. Thanks so much for the feedback πŸ™‚

    • Thanks so much! I’m glad you think so… I was just playing around in the Weave House. I didn’t think anything would come of these photographs because I was there to photograph the weavers. However, I ended up loving most of the detail shots I took… and so did re:loom! Some of these are on their website. This has been a fun project to work on πŸ™‚ Thanks so much for your feedback πŸ™‚

    • Yeah number 2 is a little dark… I took that photograph while trying to get my camera on the right setting, but I ended up liking it for its darkness because I felt it highlighted the thread beautifully. Thanks so much for your feedback!

  1. What a lovely shot to pick for the first image on this post. I love the soft light! It really highlights the delicate appearance and vibrant colours of the loom threads. What a great cause to come together for, too! Looking forward to seeing what else you post in your blog. Giving you a little follow to see where you take your work! πŸ™‚

  2. I love the soft light and the pastel colours, it can’t have been easy to get the exposure and colour balance right for these, it would have been so easy to over saturate or get too much contrast with harsh lighting. Oh – and they look better without the watermark too! As always, well done!

Let me know what you are thinking :)
