I was just recently approached by Eric Mower + Associates to do some photos for their client, Laticrete International, showcasing their product in the recent Glendale Galleria renovation to be the feature article of the upcoming issue of Tileletter. This was a great opportunity and allowed me to really focus on my architectural photography. I went into this shoot knowing that I needed to capture tack sharp images for the client and to do this I decided to use the Canon 24mm f/3.5 Tilt-Shift lens. This would allow me to capture edge to edge sharp images and also allow for image stitching to be able to take in the immensity of the mall while avoiding the need to use a super-wide angle lens that would cause pin-cushioning. I also wanted to keep the images as clean as possible so that the freshly installed tile would be showcased. I had to shoot during normal mall hours, so there was a constant flow of people walking through the mall. I ended up using multiple shots over differing time frames to be able to remove as many people from the images as possible. Most of the final images here are about 9 to 10 images used to remove the mall patrons and shot in 3 different steps using the shift function of the lens to create the panoramas. The post-processing was completed using Adobe Photoshop for stitching and people removal and Adobe Lightroom for final color and dynamic range corrections. The client was super pleased with the images and I am greatly looking forward to seeing them published!
