Project: CHP Grass Valley, California.
Pre production scouting help tie down our shoot list and address any problems prior to our final photo shoot. The building was complete and we scheduled a date for final photography. As things happen when we arrived the building was not ready for final photography, we cancelled better to re schedule, then to try to shoot around things that are out of our control. Landscaping complete but not grown in, so we have to live with the exposed dirt.
I am just amazed that the architects can find a concrete block that looks like siding, fitting for a detail shot. You have to shoot this with hard natural light to make it look right.
Move inside and shoot what daytime shots are available.
Major clean up to make this work and make sure you put everything back in it’s right place.
Five places to be at dusk where do you start? I choose to start where there is no architectural lighting in this area, shoot quick and move to the next shot. Shoot for a vertical, possible magazine cover shot.
Yes, we moved a large picnic table, trash enclosures to get this final view.
Our last shot, it’s a wrap, a couple of shots were not possible. I am pleased, when I know when I please myself first, then my clients are always happy.
