It is quite tricky trying to photograph scenes in the Emerson House. I love all of the glazing but it becomes my nemesis when trying to capture images of miniature scenes. In an effort to keep my ugly face from being reflected in the windows and/or my workspace from being the scene's backdrop, I've purchased some polycarbonate panels from TAP Plastics to take the edge off.
So far, the panels have proven to be a decent choice. It was a pleasant surprise to see that the textured panel makes it look like rain outside of the mini scene. I'm still exploring the best way to marry camera angles and lighting so that I don't intrude upon my own photos. I've tried the "hide behind this" and "hide under that" but I never seem to quite master it. Sigh. I really should take a photography class...maybe get some proper equipment...
Anywhoo...what's going on in the scene above? It's supposed to be a study or den that was transformed into a small home theater. I tried to give it a masculine flavor and sprinkle it with vintage seasoning...stir and shrug.
