Default Tearsheet

Some of my previous posts here were not well received, and yes some of the criticism was warranted. The image in this publication was not my best work, but it was published nonetheless. The before image (smaller one) was NOT taken by me, but the credits lead you to think that. I only shot the completed version.

My wife, the designer, should get most of the credit. I was only the camera jockey.

Part of the charm in the photo was the clear visibility through the window. I had it exposed just right. But you can see they covered it up with the graphic.

Don't sweat it. After the images are always printed the process of printing always screws up something in the image. Don't give another thought to it, you did good.

This fight has been an ongoing one between the Photographers, Art Directors and Printers for years. It wont go away over night, and if you ask anyone they all will say that there's nothing wrong with the way it printed. This is what they had in mind, you can jump up and down all you want it wont change anything except maybe give you an ulcer.

Not worth it. Just be thankful it was put into print and then look for the next one. Having your images printed is addicting though.

The larger photo's not bad. I'd like to see some light coming through the window on the left and splashing across the wall above the tub. Unfortunately the layout of the page is so bad the window and that part of the wall is now obscured by that huge white panel of type.

Hard to believe that bathroom make-over cost $33,600 ! That's crazy!

Amen to that! Took me a while to get that through my head, and I still have to remind myself frequently.

jbrooksga -- Congrats on the tear!

There was a nice article on thestrobist.com not long ago about lighting your house for market ads.

I like what you did here. Nice job.

Last week, we were the recipient of a NKBA Calla award for best large kitchen. I remember that these photos were not that well received here initially, however they were good enough to win a competition. They are certainly not my best work, but I am proud of the award.

The Georgia Chapter of the National Kitchen & Bath Association presented the Calla Awards for the winning entries in the 2009 Design Competition
2009 | The Calla Awards | Georgia Chapter Design Competition
The fact is the award was made for "Large Kitchen Design" by "Lisa Brooks Allied ASID" not the photographs. She should be proud.
