My livingroom, studio

It never fails to amaze me how odd the perspective is from the camera. What seems perfectly acceptable to our eyes is too far away and too spread out when viewed through the lens.

So to prepare for a video shoot we were doing yesterday afternoon, I squished the table and chairs as close together as possible. The plant is arranged so that it peeks into the frame; the wooden sculpture is just fully in the frame. The top of the palm extends out.

Pretty much everything in my living room has been moved to the corner of the room. And thought it looks strange to the naked eye, it seems totally normal on tape.

Despite the careful positioning of objects and furniture, I'm not happy with the way the footage turned out. Once we added the people, the framing was OK, but not great. Next time, I'm arranging it all another way. I'm glad my furniture is lightweight.

Framing is so different from what we expect, isn't it? Your black couches must make a very good background, though. Sorry to hear the footage didn't turn out the way you wanted, and hope it goes better next time. Could the people sit next to each other on the larger sofa?

Arranging rooms makes us refreshed, don't you thing so? Anyway what a nice room! Yoru room is very organized.
