our house: the living room
My sweet husband got me one of the best gifts for Christmas: the Photo 101 book. I've always wanted to take pictures of our first house and document the changes we make along the way, but I'd get frustrated because our house doesn't get very much natural light.
My pictures were either too dark to see, or too overexposed because I'd use the wrong manual settings. This book, which I read all in one night (and then woke up the next day and practiced a ton), should come with every camera. It teaches you how to get the correct exposure for every shot, and get light-filled pictures. It will make you want to photograph everything.
So, now that we've taken down all of our Christmas things, here is part one of our house: the living room! We've rearranged it a million times because the layout is tricky and I'm the most indecisive person ever. But here it is, with a furniture arrangement I finally like, ready to be personalized. I'm thinking: more plants, more pictures, more pillows. And maybe paint?
