Lansdowne Va Architectural Photography

June 21st, 2016 Comments off

I usually hate it when people walk through my architectural shots but this time the third person who walked through looked great.  I was pleasantly surprised to see the touch of red come through on an otherwise drab shot.  I was shooting long exposures on a tripod but was able to change my settings quick enough to freeze the action at precisely the right moment.  We had to ask her for a model release after and I’m sure she would have walked out again if we asked nicely.

 

Arlington Architectural Photography

October 3rd, 2012 Comments off

We recently photographed the Westlee building in Arlington, Va.  for an architectural client.  Early fall is a great time for architectural photography in the Northern Va area.  The trees and grass are still green and the skies are clear and blue.  It’s refreshing to get some “Clean” sun instead of the hazy light we get for most of the summer around Washington DC.

Maryland Live Casino Interiors

no images were found

My assistant and I made a stunning series of 30 interior photographs of the Maryland Live Casino.  The architectural photography was for a Las Vegas based interior design company that focuses on the gaming industry.  The lighting design in this casino was very elaborate and controllable.  We used a DMX controller to adjust the LED lighting to our taste.  We shot 7 images of each scene and combined those exposures to create the final product for our client. We delivered very high resolution images with a wide color gamut for the client to print and smaller images for web use.

The photography will be used for marketing and interior design competitions.

Virginia Real Estate Virtual Tours

I’m frequently asked to create architectural and real estate virtual tours . These are a very interesting form of architectural photography. I’ve been generating these virtual tours for the Virginia real estate  industry since the mid 90’s.  My  proprietary process for creating virtual tours is complicated, but it yields a very high quality virtual tour.  Each VR tour image starts with 25 fisheye exposures which are processed through a series of 5 programs to generate a single virtual tour image. Once merged and stitched, the resulting 360 degree panoramic image can be displayed in a number of  ways: Quicktime VR, IPIX, Flash and Java are the most popular. IPIX virtual tours are used by many real estate companies. Below is a Quicktime VR version of the above flat image. This image is from a Virginia virtual tour of a model home done recently for a Virginia home builder.

I recently completed an architectural photography project of a home in Great Falls Virginia. It’s a beautifully remodel home on a fantastic wooded Virgina lot. One of my Maryland architectural photography clients is entering the home in a Washington Spaces contest. Washington spaces publishes some very nice home photography, so I do hope they win.
