The secret to creating the above pic is revealed in more behind-the-scenes photos on the WooWork Facebook Page or on Flickr.


Thank you to MJ and Mom for helping photograph and videotape this project,
which took three to steer.


And thank you for visiting WooWork and participating in the grand race!

  7. I've been going to my sister's camera club with her and this makes me want to learn so many more photography techniques! And I was stoked to see that armature--a friend of mine who does stop motion just mentioned that to me!

    1. I originally started this crochet blog as an outlet to practice my photography! Since then, crochet has become its own passion... but it's so true about practice being the best teaching class for any medium. Keep on shooting for your excellent blog! :)

      Wish I remembered that the flexible/pose-able plastic piece was called an armature haha Memories of "Coraline"!

      Thanks Lorna!
