Spurred on by the terrible photos I've been taking, and posting, I bought a tripod! Hopefully this will allow me to take good pictures of my garments to share with readers :) Of course this means I'll soon spend a sunny day re-photographing garments!
My previous method was standing on a dining chair while photographing myself in a mirror, or getting a lovely yellow effect while using the hall mirror. Then I upgraded to using the timer with the camera on a bookcase: unfortunately this cut off most of my legs. Not so helpful when attempting to photograph a skirt.
