The Primary Bathroom
Here I am in the primary bathroom and bathrooms are always pretty hard. You'll hear a little bit of extra echo as well. So I hope that doesn't bother you, but you can see me in the reflection that my photography camera is way in the corner. And one of the benefits of the flip out screen from the XT four is that I can actually set it up, flip the camera around and actually see exactly what is on the frame. I'm also using the app which is going to allow me to remote trigger the camera. And so looking at this set up, I got it as wide as possible. This is with the millimeter. And so this is a situation where even having a wider lens might be even better, but I think we're gonna get away with it here. Now, my goal with this photo is to show really what this entire space is. We've got the toilet, we've got the bathtub, we've got the double vanity and then of course, we have the shower as well. Something that I'm going to look at to see is do I want this close? It's kind of cool to see that ...
closed as well. That, that's a mirror maybe halfway so that you can kind of see that it's a toilet as well, maybe something like that giving that sense of. Ok, what is this space? We've got the toilet room, but we've also got this cool, cool mirror. I might just do two different ones. There is some nice natural light coming in from that room and that's some of the only natural light we are getting. So remember we're shooting at F eight, we are shooting at ISO 160 which is the lowest for this camera. And then we're just using our shutter speed to basically expose properly. We're going to take first our shot with the lights on. We do have all the lights on. This is not a room that lends itself to an all natural photo. So we're gonna do that, then we're going to take our uh flash shots and I might do one where I'm pointing it up just at the ceiling and then maybe one in this room as well and see what that looks like if I'm going to use all of those to combine it and then that's going to be pretty much it, then we're gonna swap angles and see if we want to get a different angle. So here we are with like a 1/4 2nd shutter speed. So obviously having it on a tripod is important right now. So let's go ahead and take this one shot. So from here I can just press this button to take the shot. Make sure I'm not in the mirror. That's pretty good. I'm gonna go in here and just do one with this door open all the way so that you can see the toilet. So people know that. Ok. So there is a toilet in there and then one with it shut. Oh, ouch. Careful. I actually really like that. That's pretty cool. I think that's a cooler shot. Now, looking at this, I might tilt down a little bit. I don't necessarily need to see the ceiling, the very top of the ceiling and I wanna see more of this tub. I don't want to get rid of that shower head though, but seeing that tub is pretty cool. I'm not sure if this ladder adds much or detracts. I'm just gonna put like that. It kind of adds like a nice other tone. I think that's about as good as we're going to get from this angle. I wanted to make sure we saw the vanity lights, we're seeing the double uh sinks, we see the showerheads, we see the bathtub with the spout and I think this is pretty much as good as we're going to get. So I'm gonna retake this photo again just like this with the lights on. Now let me open that door, turn on that light as well. Actually, that's kind of nice bright ends. Up that area as well. Cool. So that's looking good. Now, let's take one with our flash. So with the flash, it's always a little bit of trial and error to see how powerful you want. Different flashes work different ways. This one, you can set it to full speed and then you can go down by increments. So if I want it to be half speed, I can go down and just go down until it's not as powerful. So what I'm gonna do is just from, from over here, I'm just going to shoot it at the ceiling and see what this looks like. And the cool thing about using the remote is I can just switch to viewing my photos right from here. You can kind of see the before and after it adds a little bit, although we have my reflection in the glass. So we're gonna do that again and go over here on this side. So if you see me, I'm gonna be standing kind of in this corner and while we're at it, I'm just gonna take one from inside here. Now I'm gonna take one just, just so we can see which one works best from over here in the corner, kind of really close to the camera itself and I might be too, too close. So let me switch hands. There we go. Cool. So we're gonna have to combine a couple of those because we are getting the reflection in the glass itself, but I think that's pretty good. Now, I do wanna take one more with that door closed just so we have that. This is the second shot with the flash with that door closed. All right. So that's looking pretty good. We're gonna flop angles and get a different shot. All right. So you can probably see me in this shot somewhat. So, what I'm gonna do is take the camera and I know we talked about doing opposite corners, but I'm going to go to this corner here where we can see the tub and the shower itself, which I think is a good view to, to be able to see. So let's go ahead and we definitely see us in this reflection. So we're gonna open this door for this one and turn on the light. So here we're getting some really funky angles of those doors, that door frame. So gonna try to get that plant in there. So I'm just trying to set up this angle. It's pretty difficult to, to see what I'm doing over here. So, what I'm trying to do is try to make sure these lines aren't totally out of whack. So I wanna highlight the bathtub, the shower itself and I think something like this works pretty good. You know, you kinda wanna get a little bit of the ceiling as well, but we're also highlighting this big wall of tile. So that's pretty cool. All right. So let's go ahead and because I'm filming or I have my flash on, I'm just going to turn my flash off actually, right here, just turn this off and then take this photo here with the lights on, gonna make sure our shampoo can't be seen. That's pretty good. And then I'll take one with the flash on. Cool. Not sure if the flash adds much to that photo. So let's change it up again and we're gonna take it from the opposite corner probably where the shower is so that we can show the connection between these vanities and then the primary bedroom as well. All right. So now we're getting the, so you can kind of see I'm trying to make these lines vertical, but we're still able to s see the vanity, the double vanity. But now we can also see out into the other room. So we're gonna have to clean up that really quickly. We are getting a lot of those cool light from the daylight coming in from there. That's the problem with mixing tones. So what we're going to do is turn on those ceiling lights over there. I'm gonna grab my flash, turn this off, get our first shot. Let me see. I might crouch down under here. So you don't see me. Hello? Take one shot and then we're gonna do one with the flash on and I'm gonna stand over here as much as possible. So I'm gonna have to move this camera that's good. And then I'm gonna go ahead and do a uh the flambe flash shot for out here. So I'm just gonna stand right on this side of the door frame and point up at the ceiling. I was a little bit hot. So let's do, do that again. Oh You see me in the, in the reflection now. So I'm gonna bounce it against the wall behind me. All right. So that's it for the primary bathroom and I'm gonna move on to the bedroom itself where I think the lighting has improved.
