Blurring Roses- Photography Tips

The Armchair Photographer


Photography, alone of the arts, seems perfected to serve the desire humans have for a moment – this very moment – to stay.

~Sam Abell


Some of you might recognize the space I'm zeroing in on, from yesterday's post. We call it the atrium room– it serves rather nicely as a dining room and photography studio. The painting is easily covered for a different backdrop. The room is aqua, so if you see an aqua glow in some of my pictures, you now know where they were taken. It's pretty cushy to shoot from the chair and rest my elbows on its arms. I also move the chair to change positions, and of course, sit on the arms sometimes too.

I've always liked to sit and shoot. Dining chairs, which aren't in the pic, are also good photographer seats, when I'm in close-up mode.
