It's time to give the garden a rest, at least for now.
We had an interesting experience last week.
Our home was photographed by a professional photographer.
It was actually for a couple of reasons which I will share later, but I wanted you to look at how the photographer framed each shot and how different they are from the photos I have used (my own) in my past posts. And how much more each shot allows you to see!
It was really fun to watch him work and he seemed to know exactly where to place the camera even though he had never been in this house.
It takes about 45 minutes to set up for each shot and he only took a few frames.
I found the one below really interesting because it moves from the breezeway into the master in a single shot. He got the light coming through the windows too.
This shot of the living room sitting area was one of my favorites because it really captures the ceiling height and the crisp details.
Above is the media room, a fancy word for the spot we watch TV. This was my least favorite photo because this room is very warm and cozy and I didn't get that from this photo. What I do like is how the purple and aqua work together.
Above is the famous blue table I stalked. He opened the french doors out to the front deck and framed the orchid in the photo.
The kitchen below.
He had me style this shot with the wine and notice the flowers I posted about last week, on the island.
He also seemed to get an orchid blossom in each photo.
Again, if you look to the right you will see the living room in the shot as well.
This is another angle where he frames it to flow towards the little side patio with the fountains.
Grandma sleeps here! But just for a few days....
Design work space and blog central....
This is the master bath that I haven't shared because the angle was impossible for my camera, but he got most of it.
The stone is a cream french limestone.
I wasn't crazy about the photo below but he got the entire master in one shot, bedroom sitting room and bath..amazing what a lens can capture
What's interesting here, is that I used the grasscloth wall paper in only the sitting area to set it off from the rest of the room. Now you can see why that works so nicely to separate that small special space.
The front deck looking quite snappy in lime green.
It was a perfect day for photos too!
Well, I'm not sure if this matters but I think I need a new camera lens.
best to all
and thank you for all the special comments on my last post,
