Switching It Up
We haven't really done a whole lot of anything this week. I've come down with some sort of weird head cold/allergy situation and haven't been feeling my best. Mostly, the girls and I have been resting or visiting the dog park in our apartment complex. On Friday we have a fun hike with one of my friends scheduled and a picnic lunch. Then next week is our big event of the year, Doggie Dash. So I'm hoping that I'm feeling better by then!
The one thing I did get accomplished was some photos for a couple of reviews and just some general fun photos and I decided to switch it up a bit. Previously, I had been using my kitchen for photos. The lighting in there is pretty good but the flooring is ugly and dark. It was always a huge pain to set it up because I would have to move absolutely everything and hang blankets up to cover the ugly heater and put blankets down to cover the ugly floor. It would take me probably 30 minutes to set up for a photo shoot depending on how much stuff I had to move. We are also growing a bunch of plants in our window now so they would have to be carefully moved as well and it's a huge pain. Then I would have to lay on the floor or bend funny to get the photos. Most of the time I would have sore neck by the time I was done!
Recently I discovered that the lighting in our bedroom is pretty good. Not as great as the kitchen but decent with adding a bit of help from a lamp. So on sunny days I can now shoot in there if I can't go outside. It's much easier, the dogs are raised up on the bed so I don't have to bend my neck funny and there's not a whole lot of things I need to move! So far the girls are really liking it and it's working out so much better. As you can see from the photo above, Phoenix is pretty comfy!
Do you ever have trouble finding the perfect spot for photos? I'm so picky with my pictures!! LOL
