25 March, 2022 seen 69I spent another day at our Vilgāle apt, today's plan was to polish the ceiling and wall (I yesterday plastered) and add…
Today I'm continuing works in second floors room. Yesterday we did a wallpaper removal and chalk scratching thing. Today is the right time to apply base layer of fresh paint for ceilings.
I had an idea not to apply white paint for walls this time, as I did it in first floor last year, see: Room One - Wall and Ceiling Painting with Water Based Paint; Removing Junk And Adding First Layer of Paint (Kitchen Works); instead to glue new wallpapers here. Thus after finishing paint job for ceilings I decided to apply a test layer with paint on walls, just to see. The result was pretty much satisfactory, and after a short consultations, we decided to go white again.
It was interesting experience not only to excel as a paint dude, but I had a time to improve my photographer skills also (or apply my latest knowledge). It is hard to make a decent photography in a narrow space. I experimented with panorama technique and got pretty decent result (see bellow)
Ceilings and walls before paint job
This is a default photo I could get shooting at widest with my kit lens (18mm).
At this stage paint is applied both to ceilings and first test layer is on the walls. A little bit better photography, just by lowering the shooting angle.Still there is a problem - overexposed window. I decided to experiment with HDR to make a decent photography here next time.
The first base layer of paint is applied everywhere. To get a perspective photography of this room I had to shoot about 6 different images and later merge them together in Adobe Photoshop.
