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 results 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…

Ideal Home…

.. with a wee bit of pushing & shoving…
Setting up the shot
.. we managed to get a great result this week – so Congratulation to Carol here…
Carol Moore in her semi detached Belfast home.
.. who’s home was snapped up by Ideal Home – which we reckon was largely due to this image…
Union Jack cushion in Carol Moore's home in Belfast.
.. and that very unusual cushion – and so, your home should be appearing in their magazine in the early part of the next year.

The storyline:

Carol bought the home approx 7 years ago and did a lot of work to it such as a new kitchen, fireplace etc. But the main storyline is probably about her love of recycling old bits and pieces that she picks up from Charity shops, salvage yards, and auctions. Kind of interesting too that her favourite colour is green !!

So way to go, Carol – and thank you once again for inviting us into your beautiful home.
