Look Who Came Through My Backdoor
What fun we had. They have a wonderful job and love what they do. You can just imagine what a shoot with them would be like. We are going on a field trip to watch them shoot.
Another big decision is being made. Can you tell? Well, it takes a long time to take even one shot. It is interesting to watch these two professionals at work. They can arrange things just perfectly for the cameras eye.
That evening, after the shoot was over, they all came Through My Back Door for a dinner of spaghetti, garlic bread, and salad. Dessert was home made apple stack cake,(which they had never had). This is a picture of the stylist and the home owner all worn out after a day of fun.
Now that you have seen some of what goes on during a shoot, (this is actually just a drop in the bucket) maybe you would like this experience too. They are always looking for homes. They like you to take full room shots, not vignettes, of every room. Your photos do not have to be perfect, they do not expect that. Send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. That is Mathews with one T. He will send them on to Donna Marcel, the editor and she chooses the homes to publish. Your home does not have to be perfect. I promise you if you do this and are chosen you will have such a wonderful experience, you'll cherish forever. You do not have to feed them, we just did. They don't expect you to. I invited Gloria to stay with me and she accepted. We had a wonderful visit and were thrilled to have her Through My Back Door. Dasko, the friendly rottweiller loved her. I didn't get a picture of them and don't know why. I hope you enjoyed meeting them and coming Through My Back Door where life is good.
Bill and Gloria drove 20 hours in a snow storm to fulfill their commitment to this shoot. Can you believe that? Here is what it looked like on Sunday night, and this was before it got really bad. This at the side corner of my front porch.
. Oh by the way, look for the article in the Christmas issue of country Sampler,2011.
