architectural photography assignment example – see me in action

architectural photography assignment example – see me in action taking shots at night photography exercise for a signage and display company client.
the idea was to capture the lit signage for the client’s website. The best choice in my opinion is to do a series of wide angle shots and close ups with the telephoto lens, starting shooting at dusk when there is still a bit of light and still can hold the camera in the hand. After that few night long exposure shots to show the ambient. As a challenge – exposing for the scene will overexpose the signs and exposing for the sign will underexpose the rest of the image. The only solution is to take a series of images in the same position, obviously shooting from a tripod, from the underexposed to the over exposed in order to have 2 shots to be combined into post production

    Thanks for the tips, I was under the impression  the  that it is better for less distortion of images not to reach f 22, probably around f 11, is that not true

    Hi Christian, excellent example. I came across your website today and watched some of your tutorial while searching for some tips and tutorials on advanced photography, and I wish I had seen them earlier but never is late.
    Just one thing, in this example in post production why don't you use layer masking instead of erasing the layer. By using masking you never lose the data on the layer and can paint it back later if you wanted to make changes.
    From now on I will be following your tutorials and hope you keep your great job going.

    Do you do a mirror lock up when you do bracketting? Do you thing mirror lockup is helpful with several shots to be combined in post?
