I've noticed lately that architectural photography has somewhat become linked with bad HDR. Don't get me wrong, there are some instances when HDR does the trick, but in most cases it results in a lot of bad halos, weird color casts, and massively over processed photos. By using light rather than layering photos of varying exposure, I have the ability to create shape and depth in a room that highlights where I want the viewers eye to go, and creates an atmosphere that represents the overall feel of the space. I'm currently working on a project for RAD Architecture, which is a firm here in Calgary that has made a name for itself designing high end restaurants and bars. Here are just a few of the images I created for them recently.
