My Pretty Floral Chair

 
Morning is my favorite time of day and I especially
love shooting still-life photos with a low morning sun streaming
gorgeous light into the scene.
 
This week, I awoke to a beautiful sunny morning,
and decided to haul my favorite floral chair to a field
and photograph it in full morning glory.
 
The chair is so pretty in the photo, you would never know it was
a musty old chair I found at the thrift store!
 
 
When my eyes landed on this beauty from across the thrift store,
I KNEW it was MINE!
 
My heart pummeled as I hurried over to the chair,
worried somebody would snatch it up before I could reach it.
 
Not to worry....NOBODY was noticing this lovely treasure.
 
If you could see this in person...it's not so lovely.
 
It's actually made from vinyl!  I think it's from circa 1959
and likely hid in somebody's basement for years.
 
I had to wipe away dirt and cobwebs from my
$15 thrift store treasure.
 
But, I KNEW it would photograph beautifully
and it DOES!
 
It's perfect for little girl shoots!

 

 
Photography is very forgiving of a less-than-perfect
paint job, outfit or old chair.

 
So, keep your eyes alert to photo props at the
thrift store.
 
Forgive a few imperfections....
in a photo.....it may be PERFECT!

I love this chair and had no idea it wasn't fabric! Vinyl is great because you can wipe it clean. ;-)
