Tuscan Design

Every Room Like Art

Among the many arrows in the quiver of a sound photographer are the arrows of interior and architectural photography. Much of my work is out on location in a beautiful or interesting setting shooting people. Some pretty, some interesting, but people none the less. Animate targets who I can boss and direct into my desired outcomes. I am also asked to photograph spaces of the living and working sort, void of humanity. In the days of film, we tediously shot everything on 4x5 film setting everything up on Polaroid film first concealing lighting where ever we could to achieve the perfect image, sometimes with eight or ten lights hidden, all on one sheet of film. Nowadays, in the digital era, we have no such tedium. I now use one light with the camera in lockdown and blast supplemental lighting into the dark holes and onto the interesting surfaces one frame at a time. The rest comes in editing, layer by layer, until the image is complete. In the days of film we were able to get 4 rooms shot, per day. Five tops. The smaller the room the more time consuming. These days our image count is quite a bit more than that. This home was designed by interior designer Mooney Graves and was quite fun to shoot because of the palette of colors, the incandescent lighting and the natural wash of window light.

I recommend exploding each of these images by clicking on them. Lots of interesting details.
