    Hey Chris,

    Curious as to how many of these got the full additional lighting treatment, and how many are mostly natural with a few ’embellishments’?

    Do you adapt the way you shoot at all if a certain magazine (such as ID, which has it’s own look) is likely to publish the photographs?

    (Good, solid, tasteful Gensler design as always)

    Hi Ed,

    The first and last images have very little supplemental lighting. The rest, though, all have a couple hour’s worth of lighting in them. I didn’t want to raise the overall light level of the space, as that wold have run counter to the mood of the design, but there were definitely areas where I thought the right lighting could enhance the richness of the materials. As typicall, I try to let the design intent direct the esthetics of the photography rather than editorial styles.

    Well it’s beautiful work on your part, and tasteful use of people in the shots. Can I ask if these were all accomplished in a single day given the lengthy lighting procedures? I assume too that you’ve used some clever compositing to hide your own lights, unless you’re also a magician. It all looks so natural.
