Back when our home was professionally photographed (you can see these posts here and here!) it was thrilling to watch the behind the scenes process go down. I gained such an appreciation for everything that goes into creating great interior shots. Perfect lighting, which leads to sunlight timing, prop-stylist tweaking, and often re-tweaking...not to mention the photographer's artistic sense of balance and proportion. Photography portfolios are a constant source of artistic expression and insight...color combos, compelling vignettes, interesting layouts and angles, it's no wonder I'm obsessed with the photography of Michael Wells, obsessed!
