The latest from my blog: Get the focus where you can find other articles, and interviews from photographers
When you mostly do portraits you always in hunt for nice background, some good place for perfect composition. Of course nowadays digital backdrops and manipulation in Photoshop make impossible to happened, but still nice place to do picture its a base.
One time I was just relaxing in bed when I thought how I might spend money if I win lottery or somehow have that amount of money to spent.
So I thought about creating natural backgrounds for photographers in big piece of land.
I imagine this like that, first off all, some nice old barn will be perfect for country pictures, then some horses for this style will be necessary to have, maybe few chickens and rabbits wandering around, old wagon and few country gadgets.
Beside this there will be a house with few rooms with different style of settings, for example one room with modern furniture, other one with old style Victorian style sofa and decor, nice kitchen with all those gadgets for some food photography, room with all cute props for newborn and baby photography, big closet with maternity gowns another one with lingerie for sexy boudoir sessions. Comfy living room with nice fireplace with big window for indoor portraits using natural light.
Of course nice studio lighting everywhere….
Then in garage Cadillac from 50s for pin up style images… and maybe and old pick up truck.
Around the house beautiful garden with some fountains and colorfully flowers.
Then I see big orchard which blooms perfectly for spring images and then is so colorful for fall pictures.
Besides this for nice natural backgrounds I see often on images: field of lavender, tulips, poppy seeds, canola flowers, some blue flowers field like blue grape hyacinth, sunflowers and of course field of wheat, another of corn, and a pumpkin patch…
Oh, yes, I see somewhere there willow trees with swings by the small pond, and forest with pines trees for Christmas images.
Than maybe stone street with old fashion lamps posts leading to the place.
Moreover some small waterfalls and a castle will be perfect to have but that might be a little too much to ask for perfection of that place.
I can see this place full of photographers, lots of wedding and overall portrait images going on…. Some photography workshops, stargazing and astro photography sessions, some family events…
Maybe I should find a sponsor to build such a a photographer’s dream place or post on “Go fund me” page? 😉
