I hate shooting out of rooms

I hate shooting out of rooms! Hate, hate, hate it! To ME and me alone, it looks unprofessional. It looks cheesy it looks trashy. Now I’m not saying there aren’t amazing images out there shot out of bedrooms/hotel rooms, just saying when I do it I hate it. Before you start to judge me, let’s
