I've spent a few hours now photographing some architecture for a couple of contractor friends for use for their websites. Funny enough they barely seem to look at the photos. The one above was the contractor's own office that I helped him design and get permitted. He is more responsible for the over all look than I am or at least his subs are - they used reclaimed fir for the wood and he has a tile guy he lets go crazy but my stuff is in there - primarily in planning form but also in arrangement of the write boards (also salvaged stuff). I'm happy to help out and look forward to seeing the final website design.



These two were for another contractor friend - a cafe he designed. He was especially proud of the lighting as he custom made them (from salvaged materials). I originally shot this cafe mid-morning. Blah. He wanted me back in the evening and it was SOOO worth it to get it at twilight.

Nice architecture shots. What focal length were you using? And all natural lighting?

using my canon 10-22mm probably mostly at 10mm (I was in a really narrow bathroom shooting the other day!). I use Elements 6 for editing and usually have to do some correction to straighten stuff up although I've gotten better about making sure I shoot perpendicular! Mostly all natural light and tripod. I probably could have used some noise abatement in last set as some were really long exposures but they'll be used for website so should be obvious. I did use off camera fill flash in a few shots not shown. Love my lens...
