This was the second time I shot this house. The first time it was sparsely furnished with whatever few pieces of furniture the owner hadn’t removed yet:
The agent decided to have it professionally staged and this is what we got the next time around:
Now it looks like a real home. Also, this go around I decided to take a little of the warmth away that I used the first time.
As you might imagine, I took this shot for myself. I do things like that. I think the chair facing out of the frame is what would draw the most criticism, but to me it adds a tension and dynamic to the photo that I like. (That’s as close as I’ll ever come to sounding like a Photography 101 teacher.)
Any time I get to do an overview like this, I do it. I think it ties together three rooms for which I had only individual shots. I think it pulls in the design the architect was looking for.
