For the past several months Anna and I have been working on a new website for Windbrook Estates in Cullman, Alabama. About a week and a half ago the site went live so I can now share a few of those images.
Here is what the home page of the site looks like with a view of the main building.
I created the main image by walking around the exterior and shooting multiple strobe-lit images that focused on different aspects of the structure. The camera stayed on a tripod and captured the same view each time but with a different part of the image highlighted. I carried a flash with me and pointed it at spots on the inside and outside. The final .psd (Adobe Photoshop) file had 50 separate layers that I blended to create the image below.
Here’s how the house looked when I first set up and begin shooting. On it’s own…not too bad of an image but compared the image above…it’s a tad plain.
This was another one of the images shot a little further into the process. I included this one as another example of what the scene looked like without any extra work.
The entranceway is another important part of this location. I used the same technique to make sure I did this beautiful room justice.
Below is a regular view of the same room without any suplemental flash work.
