Join Richard Klein for an in-depth discussion in this video Overview of the exterior shot, part of Enhancing Exterior Architectural Photos.
…The mid-century modern house creates a great…graphic shape when viewed from the corner.…Being down below and looking up at the house…accentuates the shape and makes the house look monumental.…We will use the tungsten glow from the interior lighting,…juxtaposed with the blue sky, to add the final drama.…The select frame is the one with the deepest sky while holding…detail in the paper Noguchi lamp hanging over top of the breakfast table.…There are areas in the landscaping that are equally as beautiful as the house.…
They're just not included in this angle.…Thus we'll play down the landscaping,…keeping our attention on the graphic shape.…Due to some construction on the house, there are some supports under…the cantilevered floor that we will remove to maintain the architect's vision.…
