Over the course of the last year, I’ve rediscovered my joy for taking and editing photographs. Luckily, as the Chief of Operations at Homesville Real Estate I manage our social accounts, and I get to take a lot of pictures to use in those accounts. I try not to make it too boring or too real estate focused. Instead I try styling images much like those you see in popular lifestyle accounts, with desk flat lays and so on.
For most of the styling I use standard desk supplies and branded Homesville items like in these images:
And every once in awhile an unexpected photo opportunity arises, like in these photos. We received a gift box of chocolates from Maggie Louise Confections, so I also played around with the chocolate pieces to create some custom imagery as well. The best part was getting to eat the props at the end!
I have small hands so DSLR cameras are just too big and heavy. Instead I shoot with an Olympus mirrorless OMD camera. I’ve recently upgraded to the OMD E-M1 Mark 2, but these images were taken with the OMD E-M10 in natural light.
I love brainstorming photo shoots, and I’ve accumulated a LOT of props over the years. I would love to collaborate on more photo styling, so let me know if you want to partner up.
Love these and love that you’re embracing every creative avenue you can find! You’re beyond talented!
I have so much to learn about photography, but I’m totally enjoying it. It means a lot to me that you like them.
