Free-standing.

An easy one to end the month, as it was a Saturday after all – but nevertheless for me it was a tricky enough one to light – as you can see this kitchen was basically split in two…
The kitchen in Nicola and Ray Anderson's period house in the County Down town of Donaghadee.
.. the extended part, which was closer to the camera, being filled with natural light – while the part that I want the viewer’s eye to be drawn through to, is dark.

So it was my ass on the line here…

.. as other than that, there was very little else needed to be done here, in this lovely free-standing unit kitchen.

Anyway, a blast of ‘sunlight’ and a touch of fill – and we where pretty much here as you can see…

.. so other than a few mini teaks, we were ready for Nicola to strike the pose..

.. in her perfectly colour coordinated outfit – which without doubt, will be the image that an Editor will want to go big on.

So with the main shot in the bag and the lighting already set-up for this area…

.. it didn’t really take us to long to create this next image…

.. along with some nice detail shots – before swinging back around…

.. to capture this cooker area…

.. which meant moving the table and re-lighting – but other than that, it was ready to shoot…

.. and so this was an nice easy one to end the month – thanks mainly to Nicola & Ray who had done a great job here.

Thereby giving Marie plenty of time to take some great behind (the scenes) shots smile

  3. Hello, I am desperately trying to locate a back issue of Country Homes and Interiors magazine. Specifically, I am looking for the May 2008 issue that focused on the kitchen in Mairead’s thatched cottage located near Portaferry in County Down, that you so lovingly photographed. I have seen the kitchen on Pinterest and am trying to track down the rest of the article. Thank you so very much for any help you can give me. Regards, Jean Mandigo
