I had the opportunity, as the weather was pleasant, to finish a project for a commercial photography client. Ball Rentals contacted me about photographing their newly renovated property, Aversboro Square, in Garner, NC. The shopping center contains 3 separate buildings in a U shaped configuration and a large parking lot making the photography, well, interesting. Architectural photography is very challenging but it happens to also be a favorite of mine because of the technical discipline it requires.
Since the shopping center was 3 sided, the photography had to be done at a specific time of day because the sun would be glaring off of at least one of the buildings making it inconsistent, so I took a chance and waited for twilight to even out the lighting. Sitting on the roof of my explorer (who said commercial photography was easy) I shot well into the evening and got some beautiful evening skies over the property. Here’s one of my favorites from the session.
