.. and Donegore Hill, just outside Templepatrick in County Antrim – is where we were shooting the other day, in Ruth & David’s Ulster farmhouse.
The sun has been shining most of this week – after a few weeks of snow – and even though most of our work is indoors, the difference a bit of sunshine can make is huge – as it pours through the windows and just makes everyone feel & everything look so good.
Which was very much the case here, as the place was almost naturally lit…
.. and everyone was in great form too.
Still, it is said that photographing interiors is “10% creativity and 90% moving furniture”, which as you can see here…
.. was very true – as we moved things around to suit the camera, which often sees things differently to the eye.
So it’s usually a case of taking a picture first, to see how it looks as is – which is what Marie is standing here waiting to see…
.. as she looks over to the laptop’s screen, across the room – and then we do what we feel is needed, to end up with something like this:
So it’s a bit of a slow process – but Ruth thoroughly enjoyed it all, as we turned her house upside down
And after seeing the final results yesterday, she wrote to say:
Marie and Ashley,
OOOOOOH MY WORD!!
What more can I say? The pictures are stunning and I don’t have any more words to express that.
And what about Davids response to the living room? I wish you had been here. These were his words- How did we never think of that? This is like a new room, I love it.
Thank you both for Thursday, it was a pleasure and I have every confidence you will both go from strength to strength in your work. I have looked at photos of other homes and locations on your website…….aaaaaah!
Marie I look forward to seeing Natural Calico, and the Bangor house is patiently waiting to be embellished……
With very best wishes to you both,
Which was a really lovely reaction.
So ‘thank you’ Ruth and David for inviting us along – and making us both feel so welcome.
We will keep you posted.
From Marie & me.
