This building had a really neat shape to the upper area of the roof. The design element continues down the right wall offering a nice perspective to the horizon line. I shot this one during Labor Day weekend. If you’re trying to avoid foot traffic and parked cars, 3 day weekends usually work well for these types of locations. The dry weather this year has made a mess of the landscaping for exterior photographs. This one had minimal retouching in the grass areas and the smaller trees.

The coin toss for a Classic 8 football game I shot video for. I usually bring along my still camera and take some shots in between the video stuff. I shoot sports highlight video for the Waukesha South Blackshirts Football team and the still shots come in handy for extra filler in the final video. I drop them into After Effects and create some animated effects to give them some extra life. Depending on the opening to the highlight video, I may use them to create a movie trailer effect to the start. The sunsets are usually a decent color this time of year so they make for some nice images. I try to avoid a flash if possible and just up the iso a little.
Just wrapped on a series of architectural photographs for a company’s annual calendar. The shots were taken over a 3 week time period. Some time was needed to scout the locations and estimate the best time of day. Weather was also a consideration as it was nearing fall. While the fall colors can be a nice addition, these needed to be less seasonal to allow for multiple uses. The photos ranged from churches and condominiums to office buildings and breweries.
