They say the camera never lies…

.. which in theory is true; however, that not to say that the final image always tells the true story, of what all was involved in creating what the camera recorded.

So it’s what goes on before that final capture, that I going to talk about here today – as we are just back from shooting Danielle & Ryan’s converted stables…
Ryan and Danielle Cleland Bogle's converted stable block near Killyleagh in Co Down.
.. near Killyleagh in County Down.

So it when I’m back in the studio and looking that the series of captures…
Setting up the kitchen shot.
.. which lead up to the final image…
Setting up the kitchen shot.
.. like this…
The kitchen in Danielle & Ryan's converted stable block.
.. which is usually all the world will ever see – I often smile and think to myself: If they only but knew !!

Or even knew, that we had in fact, received a little help today…

So why is Marie looking so puzzled…
Setting up the living shot.
.. as the camera never lies, because Danielle really did look this stunning here…

.. as did her home…
Setting up the dining room shot.
.. after a few minor tweaks…
The dining area in Danielle & Ryan's converted stable.
.. which you can clearly see here.

So the camera doesn’t really lie as such – it’s just what goes on around it…
Setting up the bedroom shot.
.. and what the Love Bug, who is called Oscar, did…
Setting up the bedroom shot.
.. that meant we ended up with some great images today, of this beautiful home in the heart of County Down.

Smiling from behind the camera,
Marie & me 🙂
