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.
