Sunday, my good friend Jim came up to work with me on a home shoot for a real estate client. We shot two amazing homes on the top of Lookout Mountain. One house was on the East side of the brow overlooking the city and four states and the other home was on the west side of the ridge overlooking the valley and the sunset. Beautiful.
It took us almost 5 hours bouncing back and forth between the two homes to make sure we got good light on the interiors and captured the unique illumination only available at dusk. But we did it. And we had fun doing it. That’s the most important part, I think.
Here is a little sampling of the home overlooking the sunset. And… if you like the home, it’s for sale… 😉
Oh, and I shoot my homes without any additional lighting. All images are shot with natural, ambient and local lighting. I don’t use studio strobes, hot lights, umbrellas or on-camera flash. I do turn on most of the lights (and a few candles) in the house for accent effect, but that’s it. How can it be done? More on that another time…
