95% of all of my jobs I do a pre production walk thru to tie down the scope of work,

address any problems prior to the photo shoot.

By doing the pre production work up front, it allowed for client input and most of all

allowed for multiple clients to share in the fees.

Sherman Warren was the designer of the interior and also did the painting of the dog,

his input was, “Ed, see if you can get my dog painting in the shot.”

Careful composition, just enough of the dog painting, the great curved lines of the ceiling

lead your eyes into the final composition._E9O8730

Clean the bar, add supplemental lighting, clean and simple._E9O8741

Most of the dramatics come at dusk, just to add that little blue light out the windows,

it just adds the warmth to the interiors.

It is always about timing and what is best for the illustration.

A nice 3/4 angle, supplemental lighting is a must to light the back bar and the seating.

I shot this view two or three different ways, mostly looking at the alignment

of the chairs and the relationship to the flooring.

I just love how the red and blue colors play against each other.

I like this shot the best! The off setting color out the windows,

shines nice warmth on the interiors.

I love the curves of the ceiling, it is all about timing.

One only has moments to capture these views at dusk._E9O8776
A nice alternate view with a little clutter behind the bar

which makes this not clean enough to use._E9O8782
Great balance, everything works._E9O8788

Great one point perspective and adding the blue light out the windows,

just pulls your eyes into the photo.

A nice view from the rear of the dining area._E9O8805
Just have to capture as many shots at dusk one can get._E9O8809
A nice 3/4 view, excellent detail in the shadows and highlights.

This really shows off the use of materials,

great design in the flooring, curves in the ceiling, warmth of the wood.

Just a very pleasant overall feel to the final composition._E9O8816
A slightly different perspective, I just like how the chairs in the foreground

on the right side works better than on the previous shot._E9O8832
A very clear partial overall view, with supplemental lighting.

We actually had burned out light bulbs that we could not get changed.

Through photoshop I replaced the burned out bulbs._E9O8873

Got to have a detail shot of the bar._E9O8890

I always like to leave with some kind of interesting detail shot,

just like having an image with maybe two people having a drink.
