The talented team of Sutton Suzuki architect, Anna Kondolf lighting designer, Cynthia Wright interior designer came together in this new construction home atop Tiburon with it’s 280 degree views. The home was a complex project with all elements needing to be specifically placed in the poured concrete and post-tension structure. Photographed over stages, it was always a pleasure to look out over the bay from this wonderful perch. Some of the lighting design photos were created by melding a composite of exposures to create the finial photo.
The details. Current best practices for architectural photography encompass the initial photo to be captured in RAW with a minimum of 16 mega pixels and in this case 65 mega pixels. Without moving the camera at all, multiple exposures of the same composition are taken to render the dynamic range of the final photo to be what you see here. This version of “HDR” when done well lets the viewer think the space is just as they see it in real life. To produce these natural looking photos lots of exacting steps were taken both during shooting and afterwards with Photoshop.
