Money shot......who took that?

To be successful in this amazing whirlwind world of blogging, and especially home decor blogging one thing is for certain, your photos have to rock.
I have learned so much from other bloggers tips (tripod and 2 second timer people) and from quite a few photography websites I wouldn't know where to begin.
I am still using a "point and shoot" camera Nikon Coolpix P80 on a tripod. I am in the process of picking a new SLR camera and cripes are there a lot of things to consider.

I have it narrowed down to a few options and will probably be sleeping with the manual until I figure out what is what.

For now though I have tried to learn the ins and outs of my camera's capabilities and learn a lot more about the basics of photography. My uncle would be proud. I almost always shoot in manual mode now and I honestly just happened by accident to figure out yesterday how to adjust the focus point by pushing ok. Good grief.

As a burgeoning photographer I am happy with the way my photos are looking and can recognize where they are lacking. I was editing photos this morning for some spring decor posts (which I am so late with as summer is just around the corner) and I came across a "holy bananas money shot"

I seriously felt like saying, "Who took that?"
In fact Trevor asked in a doubting kind of way, " Did you take that?" so it isn't just my imagination. lol
 
Not to toot my horn here and I probably couldn't replicate it but this picture is cool. 


It captured this mossy green chair and my african statue and travelled into the front hall with the hurricane lantern and one of our collection of tiger paintings by Edward Spera.
It is our house in a nutshell and I love it!

Just as a bonus, someone was being particularly photogenic in a Where's Waldo kind of way. Can you spot Sammy?

Has this phenomenon ever happened to you?
If so, toot your horn baby as we are learning a new skill to track the progress of our homes.

Have a great day and see you this week with lots of spring photos and inspiration.

Leave me a note. I'd love to hear from you.
Unless you're being less than friendly, then play like the rabbit and say nothing!
