It’s been awhile since I did much non-real estate photography (or blogging, for that matter) (sorry!). So, in anticipation of an upcoming trip that I want to do a lot of shooting on I thought I should get myself back into the habit. Here’s a quick diptych that I shot while fooling around in my kitchen. Just a simple one light (bounced into the wall) shot.
And! On that note, if you’re in the Seattle area check out Dinosaur Takeout. It’s perfect for people like me who get tired of ordering takeout at the end of a long day but are too tired/lazy/unimaginative to get in the kitchen to cook. It’s also a great solution if you live alone and hate storing leftovers in the fridge because deep down you know you’ll never eat it and then you’re stuck washing moldy tupperware weeks later (don’t judge me, please).
Anyway, the diptych:
Here’s the final product from yesterday’s shoot:
I have a soft spot for Belltown. I lived there for several years in my early 20s and often miss the vibrant, hip, downtown lifestyle. It’s always such a treat when I have the opportunity to shoot in Belltown and yesterday was no different. The Gallery Condos on 2nd Ave are far enough away from the loud bar and restaurant scene to be quiet and residential yet, you’re still within the heart of it all. And just a few blocks from the waterfront and a short walk from the Space Needle you’re given spectacular 360 degree views from the rooftop gardens!
I’m not here to sell you a condo (although if you’re interested, this two bedroom is priced to sell! Give Ben Kakimoto at Keller Williams Realty a call!) but do want to share some of my favorite photos from yesterday. And don’t forget to watch the video after the jump.
Big thanks to AJ for assisting and to Steve and Gus for being such gracious hosts.
Few things feel as good to me as shooting a nice one point composition. The clean lines really appeal to my sense of aesthetics. One points work especially well for kitchens and small bathrooms but I always try to include other room types when I can, just because I like them so much. Here are a few of my favorites shot over the past few weeks. Hit the jump for more photos
