Our Ap­pren­tice says…

NPhoto - - Over To You -

The show­stop­per of the day was the liv­ing room, es­pe­cially the im­pres­sive fire­place with its mar­ble man­tel­piece. I com­posed my shot a few ways be­fore set­tling on this straight-on ap­proach. As soon as I did, it hit me that this had to be the shot. Ev­ery­thing was sym­met­ri­cal – the chairs, so­fas, ta­ble, mir­ror… even the lights in the mir­ror’s re­flec­tion. I’m happy that I straight­ened up the can­dle hold­ers on the ta­ble, too. Mul­ti­ple lay­ers build up through the shot, with the ta­ble in the fore­ground, man­tel­piece against the wall and the mir­ror adding more dis­tance be­yond.
