Much of Marion Brenner's work is in the garden, but the "Architecture" portion of her portfolio includes some interior shots as well. Paging through them, you'll notice that her compositions always take into account the direction of the light, using the slanting beams to her advantage rather than letting them interfere with the subject. She even manages to successfully shoot backlit scenes, capitalizing on the soft foreground shadows.
Our own amateur photo skills leave so much to be desired that we're always in awe of professional work, but Marion Brenner's pictures are truly artful. Visit her web site for many more examples, including scans of her published work in magazines like House and Garden and Elle Decor.
