FINALLY! BEDROOM REVEAL

Hi Everyone,

Well, thanks for your patience! I finally took photos of the bedroom and here they are. I decided to use this opportunity to really (I mean really) work on my photography skills, as it is a goal of mine to be better and gain photography as a passable life skill.  So often Nick takes photos when are we are out and about and many of those end up here on the blog. So it was important to me that I took all of these photos and learned how to edit them with only Nick's guidance, not his actual assistance. It was so challenging, but also really gratifying.

Some quick things I still need to work on (because excuses make me feel better):
  • I need to remember the overall story. I forgot to get a good "overall" shot, mainly because I wasn't using a wide enough lens.
  • Dust a little more before taking pictures. You'll see some um, character (?) here.
  • Quality over quantity. I took a ton of photos of some areas of the bedroom thinking "one of these will be great". Not so much. 
  • So, so, much more. 
Anyway, heeeeere goes nothing! And, again, thank you to Deweese for allowing me to blatantly copy her living room paint color for my bedroom! 



 Phew! If you're still with me, I hope you liked it!

xo,
