Dawn Williams Design
This is a shot I did for ASID competition for Dawn Williams. It's a wonderful space and an intriguing design. I shot this using available light with the HDR technique and you can see how the technique brings out the detail and character of the design. It requires a lot of discipline to shoot HDR and achieve photo realistic results, but it can be done and when done properly the results are absolutely stunning.
The detail of the faux finish has depth, the detail woodwork and fabrics are represented so realistically you can almost feel them. And the play of light on the walls captures the drama of the design concept in all it's glory. Even the shadows below the table are represented exactly as they appear when experiencing the space in person.
