We've just completed the Parade of Homes here in St. George.  It was a great success!  Its always a risk to pour so much money into a home in the hopes that #1 people will recognize your abilities and #2 someone will actually buy the home.  Fortunately we have a top notch construction and design team, and yet again they have built a magnificent home that accomplished both our goals.  

We traditionally have paid a professional photographer to come in and shoot the home for us, however this year I convinced them that I could take the photos and save the company some money.  I now know that this was both arrogant and presumptuous.

I felt totally comfortable in my ability to use light in shooting exteriors, but knew that shooting good interiors is a completely different ballgame.  I was also going into the situation with no additional lighting equipment except for natural light and my built in flash.  Next time I take serious shots of an interior of a house I will invest into some lighting equipment to help bring out the colors of the shot.  

These are a few of the photos that I took and had time today to do some post processing in photoshop.
