Some shots from a cross fit shoot I did yesterday.  The first shot I've had in a while that allowed me to do whatever I wanted.

Did a "pay the bills" job today.  When I was packing up, I saw this awesome view of the New York Times Building and could not refuse the shot (especially considering the windows actually opened in this office building).  P45+ with the Roddie 90mm.

About time to put some work up here.

Lots of heritage restrictions involved in the process given the Victorian era street-scape and existing building.....
The interiors were very nice with some great spatial connections - unfortunately the owner wasn't keen on them being shown online.

Forms slipping past forms....I think the Architectural response was pretty interesting.

I had to take a second look, and it is a secondary image, the first went through a closer look.

What kind of spaceship is this?
Ion beam drive?

No worries Sam.
I too can understand your input on the two images. none taken away from their overall niceness. :-)

One thing with the shoe, now that I take another look Dean....I wonder how it would look if you "pull" the surrounding glow/green down a notch so it doesn't compete with the shoe, kinda helping it to emerge from the fx?  When I squint, I would still want to see a separation from product to rest of page. Just a thought to try if you can see the direction. Again, Well done.

On many of these professional interior shots I hardly see any shadows.
Is that a common requirement?
Shots often get this odd artificial look to me because of that.
(Not only the last - just recognizing on many interiors shown here.)
Sorry - I'm not a pro - so no idea.
Could someone explain?
Cheers

Very nice pictures, ACH, and I'm surprised you got them looking so natural with that lens - I'd have imagined more distortion. I was never an arch. photographer though I did shoot some house stuff for holiday brochures and estate agents (just a bit!) now and again, but always found myself frustrated by lack of movements - hated cropping at the wrong levels, but knew no other way of staying vertical... no PS in those days.

Colour looks very inviting, to me, and that's what usually counts, I'd think: attractive versions of reality.

Well Chris, Rob Thanks for the liking and comments.
Chris my approach is to emulate or enhance reality, or both.
What we see is not the same film or digital sees, our eyes-brain accommodate to light, contrast and color temperature.
These images reflects what my eyes saw and what my soul felt sitting in that place.
If I photograph a wooden mountain house would provably use deeper shadows and more moody color balance.
Hope this answer the interesting question.
About my nikon 14-24 I think is great for interiors, I use a 28mm, 35mm and 60mm as well. Distortion is minimal if you shoot at level.

Well - I think its a valid look and it has its own merits and beauty.
I just realized many interiors I see in this thread or occasionally in magazines have this sort of
soft lighting with hardly any shadows, so I wondered if its a kind of unspoken standard or market demand.

Cheers

In a sense there is no right or wrong way in this, but there is competent and incompetent. And this is very competent of a full on "strobe lit" commercial interior. I'll bet the clients loved it. But compare it to the interiors of Yelhsa (I'm probably remembering his name wrong) who also posts here-who lights with much more drama. If this was a film shoot 20 years ago I would refer to these above as "American Style Lighting" of an interior vs. a European or Asian Style which used less fill and more shadows and contrast and existing light. I say that because both as a practitioner and an academic (I have done AP for a living for 36 years and taught AP at three universities) I have studied this subject extensively. These days those distinctions are meaningless. I don't know if that confuses things more or helped-just my analysis over the years learning from some of the US greats and then having the opportunity to watch some Europeans work in Santa Fe some years ago and trying to figure out the difference. I personally have moved from the American Style to a more European Style (now obsolete terms) with the advent of digital because it is more forgiving in mixed light and by layering files I can have much greater control than I ever had with film and don't have to have total control in a single exposure as I did with film.
