This Month’s Photography Tip: Outdoor Living Areas Part 1

Dressing Up the Outside:  Perk up uninspiring outdoor areas before you shoot

Summer is a great time to let your creativity flow.  When photographing a patio or deck, you can take an image’s impression from plain to powerful by adding a few details.  Setting an outdoor dining area with inexpensive yet colorful tableware suggests a “lived-in” element to the area, without the additional time needed for photographing models for a lifestyle shot.  Adding wine, glasses, and candles creates a romantic atmosphere, while the use of potted plants and flowers can help soften and add color to large areas of concrete and stone.
