  1. ah! they photos turned out so good-please tell me what you did for lighting? no flash-but a spot?? I just traded with katey from her good button score on ebay and I have been pretty lucky here at the vinatage fabric thrift shop-I will pick some up for you next time I am there, if there are any cool ones.

  2. those photos are great! i wish i had some cool buttons to send your way, i need some fun fabric to get me going. sadly, i just have the old boring kind that come as extras when i get new cloths. 😉

  3. Great pictures! I love looking at vintage buttons 🙂 Hey, how about a Flickr group for buttons like your vintage fabric group? That could be fun 😉

  4. the vintage fabric group on flickr is for all raw materials – buttons and ribbons too!

  5. I’ll be going through my buttons this week; I’ll see what I can spare. Bravo to Tim on these photos!!

  6. I would agree with Amy K. – those pictures are beautiful. I would love some tips on lighting, but also on backgrounds and foregrounds. That second pictures is just fantastic! It makes me drool!

  7. I just sorted through my last batch of button finds and have a little bagful to send your way this week!

  8. I have some gorgeous buttons that I think you’d love. I’ll email you when I get home later… Beautiful photos..

  9. oh Hillary, I hope I’m not too late to join in on this. I had some buttons set aside for you, but they didn’t go with my Chirstmas theme. And I’d be happy to trade for fabric, papers or notions. Let me know. If I’m too late, no problem, I’m sure the buttons will make their way to you eventually 😉

  10. Oh, these button shots are fantastic!

  11. For those that asked, I used a spot with no flash for the photos. I set the camera on macro (no actual macro lens though) and manual settings with mostly longer exposures. The backgrounds are colored card stock with various textures. I would’ve liked to use a little more lighting but alas, we are bulb-poor!
