Before and After Photos to Document the Construction
I can imagine that some of you are asking yourself what’s the point of taking before and after pictures of your bathroom renovation project? Isn’t the whole point of remodelling your bath is to get rid of your old outdated or rundown looking bathroom and replace it with a new hip modern and upgraded lavatory?
Aren’t you trying to forget? Well, I can answer that question in one word: Memories! How many times have you heard someone say, ‘ aah, that’s a Kodak moment… or that was perfect; I only wish I had a camera to capture it.
It should also go without saying that if you are going to spend all that time, effort and money on renovating or remodelling your bathroom, you might as well capture your progress on video (or digital prints) so you can see just how far you have come.
And by taking pictures of your small bathroom remodel, you can also document mistakes to avoid and beneficial processes and techniques to repeat again.
One of life’s great satisfactions is knowing you have progressed and grown. Before and after bathroom renovation pictures are a great way of showing your personal development. Now you have the opportunity to actually plan out your digital renovation memories.
By taking pictures of your renovation project, you can feature the fun, energy and excitement of the first time renovation process in your images and leave out the bad if you are so inclined.
If you have ever enjoyed watching a time-lapse video of something being built, then you will appreciate what I mean when I say that taking pictures of your small bathroom renovation project as it evolves can be a lot of fun, especially in the end.
Gathering the Information for the Final Presentation
Watching the whole process, that may have taken days, weeks or even months to complete, compressed into just a few short minutes is emotionally fulfilling. Making a short video and speeding up the motion in this manner can be comical to watch and if anything is sure to bring a smile to your face.
That itself is a good memory. The only downside to this method is that you may need some technical ability splicing all the video clips together into a timeline for viewing or you can get your neighbours kid to do it for you.
If setting up a stationary video camera in your small bathroom will only get in the way when renovating, then your other option is taking a multitude of still pictures chronologically recording your remodeling progress and then later organizing them into a bathroom makeover picture gallery.
The pictures don’t have to be high quality images like those you would see in a glossy bathroom magazine, remember they are for your personal memories, not to be showcased on HGTV, unless of course that is your wish.
The great thing about modern digital cameras is that they can store thousands of digital images of your small bath renovation and the other good thing is that which ever pictures you don’t like, you can simple delete with the press of a button.
Not to mention you can always adjust the cameras resolution so that you can save even more images of your small bathroom makeover to the cameras memory. And if you do run out of memory you can simply download your images to your computer’s hard drive to clear up the space on your digital camera.
Once your small bath reno project is complete, you can organize your images into a playlist or remodeling photo gallery on your personal computer. Using such programs like Windows Movie Maker or Microsoft Photo Story 3 you can even create slides or movies out of your washroom renovation pictures.
Burn a CD and pass it on to your friends or family members or if you want the world to see your handiwork, upload your video to You Tube. You decide. The object is to have fun and capture those fun moments so that you can recall at a later date just exciting it was to renovate your bathing space.
