Some of the designers that read my blog have asked what software program I use for my renderings.  I have even had calls in regards to the software.  I use Minutes Matter Studio.  I have even used it to design my furniture pieces.  For the past 6 weeks I have been taking an advanced class in the midst of all the craziness of High Point.  It has been overwelming.  I turned in my project yesterday and wanted to share with you my progress after taking the class. 

Here is the before.  As you can see, I had a little trouble importing images and removing the backgrounds.  There are other issues too, but those are the most obvious.  I'm actually a little bit embarrassed by this attempt, now that I know what I'm doing.

 Now the after. I learned how to use perspective and shadows.  It is so much better.  Both my E Decorating and full service clients will benefit from these newly acquired skills.
