this page and use as a reference guide.
Use a digital camera. Download the photographs to your computer,
accurately name each photograph according to its content, and email
them to me.
2. To avoid overexposure from bright daylight or
sun, take the photos in the late afternoon, evening, or on a cloudy
day. Take photos with the flash on. With my Photoshop Elements software,
it’s easier to decrease the brightness in a photo than it
is to increase the brightness. So remember, flash on!
Room photos (see diagram): Stand in the middle of the room, face
the North wall, and take your first photo. Working your way around
the room, continue taking photos of each wall: East, South, and
West, in that manner. It may be necessary to take more than one
photo of each wall in order to capture all of the elements on that
side of the room. Name each photo: North, East, South, and West,
Window and Door photos: If space allows, face the window or door
head-on and take the picture.
For oversized windows and doors that cannot be captured in one photo,
take photos from different angles.
For windows and doors that are grouped together, or grouped with
other elements in the room (i.e., flanking a fireplace), take a
photo showing the grouping (see diagram).
Name each photo as described in item #3 above.
Take close-up photos of rugs, furniture, pillows, artwork, and accessories
as they appear in the room now. If you would like me to use these
items in the new design, please include these items and their measurements
on the Furniture Measuring
Include photos of any adjoining rooms so I can get a feeling of
what your personal style is, and work to pull in schemes from other
rooms, and coordinate accordingly.
