I love where I live but it is a modern condo and even though it's windows and rooms are great for a contemporary look I use in my images sometimes it can't give me a rustic look I love and look for sometimes!
I don't have old looking windows with character but I have found a solution...I purchased a fake window and placed in my back door studio! It is perfect for still life shots that don't require a lot of room. Here are some shots of the faux window and how it was used in my work!
I often shoot my bedroom which has a more modern feeling and look...it works very well for certain shoots I do but my heart and favorite mood and look is the rustic country life! :)
I did a shoot yesterday and created a fake bed in my studio...it offered me a little more of a country shabby chic look and feeling...I like the way they came out and I think I will try it more often!!
Hope this gives you some fun and interesting ideas to try. Have fun!! :)
