Recent Projects

Here's a follow on to last weeks post featuring a common area at the NAIT Centre for Applied Technology.  Scenes where there are multiple light sources (daylight, LED fluorescent etc) are a challenge as the colour temperature varies widely. Accounting for the daylight coming in from the windows and the deep shadows in some areas and a big effort is needed to get an image that looks properly exposed from margin to margin and natural.
