Perfect for this time of year, I had the opportunity to shoot a kitchen remodel for a new client. It's exciting to see all of the design possibilities when talented people take a fresh look at a 1980's style home. Process is a big part of my shooting. In this case, discussions with the firm's principal and the designer about staging really made the photos sparkle. Numerous shooting techniques were used including Shooting Beyond the Frame: vertical panoramic. The top and the bottom of the image were joined in most of these images to expand the field of view. Focus stacking by shooting foreground in focus and background in focus and merging the images increased Depth of Field. HDR (High Dynamic Range) photography, executed naturally, increased dynamic range, OnOne Perfect Effects Suite 9 Dynamic Contrast added clarity and sharpness, and Photoshop (several techniques including Content Aware Fill) was used to cover some small flaws such as exposed hangers on the pictures. Finally, Nik Dfine was used to reduce noise.
