Here is the next set of scans from the Country Living magazine article on this log home…
The quality of photography in these photos is light-years beyond mine.
I am so, so, humbled.
The effort put into getting the proper lighting and composing each shot really pays off… not to mention lots of high dollar equipment.
Just look at this photo of the kitchen fireplace!
Back in the 1990’s, when dinosaurs ruled the Earth, these photographers would have everything set in place perfectly and then they would take a Polaroid photo through the eyepiece of the tripod mounted camera to see if any further adjustments were needed. I was so impressed with that at the time. Today it’s all done with computers, monitors, and Photoshop.
Regardless of the tools used though, photographers are still artists, and there is nothing better than watching an artist at work. I still stand behind them and watch as they do their magic.
If there was a channel of tv that just showed artists at work… I’d tune in. No drama needed… but maybe, a bit of background music would be nice.
