Water Street Profile

May 15, 2011

I shot this office space for Water Street Profile, a boutique shared office space in Gastown. The challenge with this environment was to show the stunning view along with the interior details, which in some cases were dark wood, brick and furnishings. As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, cameras just don’t have the dynamic range to pull the details from dark shadows and bright daylight in the same shot. So a little Photoshop trickery was required, but just enough to show all the necessary details without drawing attention to the technique, which can be a problem with a lot of HDR-style images. It’s not hard to make HDR images, but it’s hard to make good ones. My client was ecstatic with the results, and has asked me to come back and shoot some more offices for him.
