I was recently hired to photograph a kitchen redone by Snaidero USA in Agua Dulce, CA. This kitchen underwent quite the transformation from what it used to look like:
The designer and I first discussed their goals for the photo shoot and then we both got to work right away. I walked around mapping out different compositions and figuring out which gear would be required...
...while the designer staged the counter tops to add some life to the kitchen - details are important!
After spending an embarrassingly long time fussing with the bar stools (those things are never fun to get the same height!), I was finally able to start taking photos. Some people would be surprised to see how much time and work goes into a photo shoot before a single picture is ever taken.
As usual, I utilized some supplemental lighting to control the look of the final images. The space already had great natural light, but it's helpful to be able to add my own kiss of light here and there to draw the eye if needed.
The place looked great and photographed even better. The client and I had good communication throughout the shoot and it was great being able to bounce different ideas off each other.
We both agreed that the glare/hot spot from the skylight had to go!
Overall, the photo shoot was fun, the client was delightful to work with, and the final images turned out great!
