Up against it…

.. but as they say: Where there’s a will there’s a way.

We started shooting homes this week, for next years Christmas issues …
Setting up the living room shot.
.. and as funny as that may sound, it was nothing compared to how funny the camera system looked…
Camera system I tried to squeeze it right into the corner for this shot…
The living room at Christmas in Marie and Alan McMillen's semi in the Cherryvalley area of Belfast.
.. of the living room.

Still, pleased with the results, as I feel we produce some great images here…

.. which was pretty much sitting up perfect…
Setting up the kitchen shot.
.. so it only needed a few small tweaks…
The kitchen in Marie and Alan's home at Christmas time.
.. and a splash of early morning sunlight, to turn it from this…
Setting up the bedroom shot.
.. into something which hopefully the Editors will like…
The master bedroom in Marie and Alan's home at Christmas time.
.. enough to give it a nice Big Spread in their next years Christmas issue.

So Merry Christmas from Marie & me – as we look forward to seeing this in print next year, in one of the big national magazines… hopefully 🙂

  5. Yes indeed Bob.
    Of course, the ‘Repro Arm’ bracket would have made life much easier or even a smaller tripod – but unfortunately, I didn’t have either of those with me.
    So this was the work-around – which actually worked okay – but looked really funny.

  6. regardless of how big the space is, the camera almost always ends up jammed in the corner (or some other equally inconvenient spot).
