School is back in session here in NC and it sounds as though it is in many other states as well. That may be the reason that when I realized just how long it had been since we posted a blog entry, the subject line of that old ‘first day of school’ standby popped into my head! And so…here’s what we did on our summer ‘vacation.’

The 2010 Spring High Point Furniture Market seemed to be very good to a LOT of folks as we did a LOT of photography in May and June. (again, we would like to thank all of our client for keeping us so busy and congratulations on YOUR success!) So a lot of our summer was spent behind the shutter.

“Real” vacation time came for many of folks here. North Carolina’s beaches are always popular spots for a midsummer retreat – and with good reason! It seems like the unseasonably warm summer pulled a lot of people to the beach, or into their houses to wait out the days until the temperature and humidity both dropped below 100. I went to Minnesota for a conference and even then I didn’t completely ‘chill down.’

Once we had a bit more room to work in, our designers and carpenters began redesigning our sets. On paper (or rather, on your monitor screen) this doesn’t sound so complex or engaging. But consider redesigning and redecorating your living room, bedroom, and/or family space and all the decisions involved with that. What if

- you had to renovate several rooms at least once a year
- you had to do it for every room
- and each of those rooms had to become a living, dining, family room (or no room at all!) at any given moment

That’s the challenge of designing new sets! Our design team worked in some very unique and different details in many of the treatments. We think our clients will be very pleased when they see their products in them. And in case you are wondering, yes, we do paint the drywall areas of the sets as needed or requested to coordinate with the final design of shot.

So it looks as though we’re back from ‘vacation’ and back into gear as we prepare for the High Point Market pre-Market show. Got photography to do before or after pre-Market? (or want to know a little bit more about what we have been up to?) Drop us a note to sales@atlanticphoto.com
