Recent Projects - Clareview Rec Centre

There's a lot of prep involved in taking interior photographs.  And a lot of work afterward too.  This photo is a great example.

When I arrived to take these photos the building was officially in the hands of the owner - the City of Edmonton.  Before the open to the public all the building systems must be commissioned and staff trained, a project that takes weeks.  The saline levels in the water have to be tested and re-tested and until the health inspector agrees that all is well the pools are officially 'dangerous', so when the staff come into train there has to be caution tape around all the pools.  And all entrances to the pool area must be marked with caution tape.  Hardly ideal conditions to take photos.  So I moved what I could and took the rest out in photoshop.  Time commitment = about 2 hours for 1 photo alone.  But the photo itself only took 1/4 of a second.

Canon 1Dx with Canon 17mm TSE lens.  ISO 200, 1/4 sec @ f/14.  Raw File edited with Adobe Lightroom, Final adjustments made with Adobe Photoshop CS6.  Camera supported on Gitzo Explorer tripod and a Really Right Stuff Ball head and camera specific mounting bracket.
