LifeWorks Home Improvement Challenge

by Caroline Cohoon | October 27, 2009

Through the LifeWorks Home Improvement Challenge (HIC), corporate and community teams partner with a decorator to design the space of a LifeWorks client. LifeWorks clients live in Supportive Housing a program offering subsidized housing to kids who need a "getting on your feet period." LifeWorks clients are former foster care children, former homeless youth and teen parents who may have never before received the help they need for a fresh start.

November Design Group of Austin, Texas contacted us about working with them to create a special canvas artwork piece to be featured in the living room of the makeover apartment. The girl living there was not able to bring her cat there with her, so we made a beautiful sepia-toned 30x30 gallery wrap canvas of her cat so she would always be there with her.

Don't trust what the photo looks like on the LCD screen. A DSLR camera will often be able to show you a photo's histogram. This is a fantastic tool to know if you got your exposure correct. It isn't too hard to figure out and is really the one thing you can trust to make sure you got the photo right.
