Recent Projects - Ritchie Market

I was asked to provide photos of the new Ritchie Market that featured lots of people in the field of view.  This is not as easy as it sounds.  There's the matter of choosing a busy time of day, the fact that with people comes cars that can block the view of the building, and controlling where the people are in the shot.  Also, the clothing the people are wearing comes into play; very bright colours are distracting and fashions change so photos can become dated.  One of the unexpected challenges I faced while taking this photo was that a bridal party arrived for wedding photos and their limo was parked in front of the building for about 45 minutes.

This photo is a compilation of about 6 photos; all these people were not actually there at the same time.  The camera was tri-pod mounted and I took many photos that I blended together in Photoshop to achieve a well populated photo.  With just one car.
