A challenging but rewarding photo shoot. The client wanted students in every photo. Most architectural photography is shot at f/16 to optimize Depth of Field and sharpness from foreground to background. This results in slow shutter speeds. Moreover, most of my architectural photography is done using High Dynamic Range (HDR) techniques. In addition, the client wanted the students in the image to appear sharp and not blurry. To overcome these obstacles, numerous images were taken of each scene to not only achieve a full dynamic range but also to insure the students were sharp. Imagine getting 5th and 6th graders to hold still! Here are the results! This image is actually a vertical panoramic combining the upper half of the wall with the lower half. The students were stitched in after the panoramic had been created.
A fish eye lens was used to add visual interest to scenes which were somewhat mundane.
This is a 5 image panoramic.
Media Center, formally known as the library, is now much smaller. Most of the reading and reference material is online.
Rather than taking photos of an empty music room and a barren gym, we photographed kids in the spaces. The spaces themselves took a back seat to the kids.
