Available Light Interior Design Photography Kitchen

Private Residence
Rutt Handcrafted Cabinetry
Today's sample of architectural photography is residential interior design.

I shot this kitchen for Rutt Handcrafted Cabinetry through Rutt of Los Altos using available light and the HDR process. I love the simple forms and the deep dark tone of the cabinets contrasted against he cream tone of the counter top. The HDR process has the ability to bring out subtle details far more clearly than shooting conventionally. I used this function to bring out the wood grain of the cabinets while maintaining their rich colors.

I like shooting residential interior design, there's more individualism and it's fun to showcase the nurturing nature of the environments. The wide range of personalities impose a perceptual flexibility that keeps my work fresh and my mind agile.
