Am I Crazy?

Here's a thought to consider and if you can, please share your views. I can decorate and even style a bookcase better when I photograph it and work from there. Sure, I can stand in a room and give ideas, but once I execute my vision, I use a camera to pull together the space and add the finishing touches. For some reason I see the flaws through my camera lens that I don't notice by standing in the space. Does anyone out there do better work after viewing a room through the lens of a camera?


My digital camera and I are besties. Heather Moore mentioned something on this topic over at Elle Decoration in South Africa (blog) a few days ago that made me feel less crazy for doing this. What do you think? Nuts or normal?
