I've found my new indoor photoshoot spot

One thing I wanted when we moved was to have a place to take photos where I don't have to put everything away each time - and I think I've found it!

Our new house is partly open-plan with double height ceilings and a gallery - and that is *mine*!

This first shot was taken from my seat at the computer, you can see the gallery is above the kitchen. If you have very good eyes (and click on the photo to enlarge) you might be able to spot that one of myfridge magnets is a pic of the lovely Johnny Depp by Silja Erg!

 This is the view up the stairs - again, the eagle-eyed might spot my little flutterbutt by Sharona of Raisinlike
 Here is my set-up, below two windows which are great for watching the stars and by day give light from two directions. There's just room for my light box, tripod and chair. The little storage chests behind hold my stock - and Captain Picard is ready for his close-up.
 Looking down from the gallery to the main room, you can see the computer to the right where I sat for the first shot.
 And this is the view from behind the chair on the gallery, over the stairs to the balcony off the bedroom. Just look at that view!
I'm not *quite* satisfied - at the moment my light box is standing on one of my yarn storage boxes, I need to replace that with a small table. Getting there though! Here's Picard, straight from the camera without any photoshopping...

Not bad, is he? Maybe just needs lightening a little. "Tea, Earl Grey, hot."

Your home has a real "Margaret's Museum" vibe.

Marilyn I hadn't heard of that movie - but now that I've watched the trailer on youtube I see what you mean!

It looks like you can watch the whole movie on youtube. (Their house is handmade with lots of odd sized windows.)
