We just finished another issue of Texas LIVE Magazine! The last couple of weeks have been hectic, but now I can breath a little easier–at least for a few days.
Here are a few photos (mostly ones we didn’t use in the article) that I took for an article about Farmhouse Round Top, a B&B in between Shelby and Round Top. If you want to see the rest, you’ll have to pick up a copy of the mag!
I don’t know why, but I love this shot of the old screen door. Maybe because it reminds me of the grocery store in Miles, Texas, and going there with my Grandma.
This room was one of my favorites–so much natural light! The owner, Beverly, is also the talented designer, and she has something different in each of the six cottages. I love that! I want to collect cottages and design all of them differently! Don’t tell Harper.
Beverly used plumbing hardware to create custom curtain rods. And check out the walls–she covered them in burlap! It’s a great look, and it has patina that reminds me of old leather.
One of the things I love about my job is getting to meet talented people with interesting stories!
Often when I’m shooting interiors for the mag, I use a tripod. Otherwise, I would have to use a super high ISO, and the resulting grain would be very obvious in print. Anytime photos are going to be printed rather than just viewed on a computer screen, imperfections, grain, and sharpness (or lack of) are all much more noticeable.
