I've been jumping at the gun. (Is that even a common phrase? Suddenly as I write it feels awkward and weird.) Anyway, I've been dying to use my three favorite new toys. Camera gear, you ask?
No way baby, not this time.
It's all about the PROPS!
For quite some time I've been on the lookout for the perfect red couch. Why? Um, really I just like red, so I figured so should all my photog clients. And then when I found this couch I swear I could hear the angels singing in the background...even as I rang up the hefty price on my credit card...sigh. But look at it. It's freaking amazing.
Then, the same day that I saw the couch, I saw a three piece antique luggage set. I was like, Hold the Phone, I'm buying that too.
So after some serious negotiation, I got the sales lady to reduce the price of the items by 30%. Not my best deal, but heck, I would have paid full price.
Then on top of all that buying beauty, I had an epiphany to scan the internet for a brocade chair, and voila, I found what I wanted.
And there you have it folks, get a good credit card, spend hours searching stores and surfing the internet, and for a hefty price you too can have cool props.
ha ha . . . but seriously.
Do you think they were worth buying?
Oh and if you want to see more of the shots from these shoots, I just posted them on my photo blog:
