It’s all in the detail

Shooting a home for a magazine is usually quite different to shooting for real estate – the latter is primarily about showing as much of the space as possible – whereas magazine editors want their readers to be drawn into the home and take inspiration from…

.. the decor and accessories.

So when we’re shooting homes for magazine features, we tend to spend almost as much time setting up the tight “lifestyle” shots as we do the bigger shots – but we know it’s the combination of the two that result in an overall appealing feature !!

Anyway, Marie worked hard setting up some stylish tight shots in yesterday’s shoot…

.. she tells me, she drew inspiration from one of her favourite stores – Pottery Barn !!!

I’m pretty clueless about stuff like that…
Setting up the kitchen shot in Ciara's home.
.. so it’s great to work with a stylist like Marie…

.. as it means I can focus on f-stops…

.. ICC Profiles, Colour temperature readings, light levels and those sorts of fun things.

Which I know is really of no interest to anyone else…
Setting up the bedroom shot in Ciara's home.
.. as it’s really all about the attention to detail…

.. as that is actually the all important thing here – to you the viewer and those who will see these images in magazines over the next few years.

So good team work – thanks Marie – and a big thanks to Ciara here too…

  5. I had been curious about if you ever thought of switching the design of your website? Its well written; I enjoy what you have got to say. But maybe you can include a little more in the way of written content so people could connect to it better. Youve got a great deal of wording for only having one or two photos. Maybe you could space it out better?
