We went to IKEA today to look for some shelves and a dresser. We stayed for over two hours and managed to leave empty handed. I had a different shot in mind for today and I set up 2 flashes and had the whole family do some creative poses. After reviewing the shots, they didn't quite fit what I had in mind, so you're left with IKEA!

    I like the perspective. Funny thing...I like that the "A" was cropped, but I wish the "I" wasn't.

    I like IKEA too.
  • Eric Martin 5y

    Funny you should mention that, I feel the same way. I probably spent 15 minutes decided how to crop. I wanted to get rid of the sky to the left of the building, however, looking at it now, I like it better how it was ;)

    LOL how you managed to leave empty handed is a mystery to me, I've never left my local IKEA without buying something.

    Great tonal and saturation adjustments on this one

    Excellent shot - nice angle.

    I remember reading something in Time magazine a few months ago about how they'd changes the typeface for the logo and there was huge uproar.
