Today it's time for some more wallpaper. I think this wall paper look really cool in the room, but it is busy. It is a constant challenge to get good images with a background screaming for attention. I think it works fine in this senior picture of Lizzie, because her skin is the only real color in the image so the eye is drawn to that minority (The image is bleached in Nik Color Efex Pro 3.0. ) I have a steel floor 4x8 ft under the wall, see how the wall reflects even in the hardwood floor she stands on when I shoot with the camera so close to the floor. The polaroid mask around the image comes from Fotowerkstatt in Germany. This wallpaper area is outside the overview shot of My Camera Room.
It is time for part 4 in my tour of how I use My Camera Room. Today I want to post a testimonial Mr. Johnsen sent me after his family shoot. First a little info: Furniture is the set first to the right in the overview from the 14th it comes from the great store Gatehouse No.1 here in Orem. The image is a high-contrast black and white with a little bit of softener over a desaturated color picture, it's a good seller. So here is the testimonial, remember make Mom look good and give Dad some good attention. Mr. Johnson writing: I used to prefer Root Canal surgery without the anesthetic, than to have family photos done. Until we met Kenneth. Having Kenneth take our family photos was a pleasure, and with two sets of twins ages 3 and 6, was not an easy task.
As you see of the overview shot of Nov.14th I have a bed in My Camera Room. We mainly use it for kids. We have some cool bedding, but the most personal is if they bring there own. That is the case in this fun shot of the twins jumping on the bed. Light: One large Elinchrome octa softbox to the right with a big white foam board to the left.
I love the hardwood floor in My Camera Room, sometimes I use it as a background or like here combined with some wallpaper. The image is from the very back left corner of yesterdays overview shot.
Here is a shot from my camera room at InStudio Photographics. It has a lot of fun sets and a great hardwood floor. In the next week or two I will be posting sample shots from different places in the room. The size is about 3000 Sq Ft ( about 270 Sq Mts) 90 feet long, so finally I can shoot some long lenses inside.
