Bonus: a beautiful chair creates a great focal point and adds texture to the images.
This is our dinning room chair from Sleek Modern Furniture (Their entire site is 15% off through the end of December with code SIMONE15).
I normally would have used a white sheet, but I liked the warmth that the texture in the blanket provided.
As this shoot was more about how to do the shoot then about getting great photos of Oliver, here are a few bloopers to keep him human! He was meant to hold a snow globe but he had a death grip on that basketball.
1. I used the HB2 filter on the VSCO cam app and turned it down to 6.5.
2. I turned down the saturation -1 to soften the red and turned up the fade to +3.5 to give it a slight vintage feel (all done on the VSCO cam app)
3. A few were a bit dark so I turned up the exposure and some needed cropping and straightening.
