focus on life: from where i stand

What a great topic. It can be interpreted in so many ways, literally and figuratively. This week I'm literal.

Sometimes I ask the question, "how is this photo staged?" and "what's outside of the camera's lens?" I did another post on this very topic here and it got some great responses - seems I'm not the only one asking this question. Staging is so important - that and cropping.

I'm such a digressor - digresser? - I digress.

  3. Lovely art as usual. I can color in the lines... but I can't really draw at all. Love your very clean kitchen, I can never get mine to look like that or even stay like that....and what a cozy chair....someplace to sit and read...Thanks for the post!

    1. Thanks Beti! Actually, I've been thinking of doing another Watercolor 101 installment but I've yet to choose a topic. Anything you'd like to see covered? Just give me a shout.

  5. I love those photos. So by staging, you mean neatening up your room first, yes? Ha,ha.

    1. Thanks. Actually, I don't have little ones anymore so it doesn't get as bad as it used to. However...did you click on the link to the first post on this subject??? I shot in my studio and it wasn't very neat to say the least. :)
