It’s about time I got with the 21st century and made myself a blog that is a little more contemporary looking than my previous one. I found it was getting harder to motivate myself to update a blog that I really didn’t care for, and as a result it kind of languished in limbo for quite a while. On top of that I still have other websites, blogs, Facebook, Flickr and Photobucket accounts to update as well. At least this new blog will consolidate two others so I can spend more time working and less time blogging. Speaking of work….
I had a great time last week shooting several projects for Jen Eden of Occupy Design: Sun at 72nd and Vita, both by Solterra Developments, and a private residence in Yaletown. Since I was shooting for the designer my main priority was to showcase the furnishings, mill work and finishes. Lots of detail, little or no shadows, ignore the spectacular views. If I had been shooting for the developer I would have taken more of a ‘lifestyle’ approach: shooting at twilight, for example, when it’s not as bright outside, will bring the views into the composition. Lower angles provide intimacy, especially when you are shooting as if you are sitting at the table or on the sofa. And photos showing lots of depth give the impression of big, relaxing rooms.
