Seattle Floating Home Interiors
January 24, 2010 § 4 Comments
I thought I’d post some interior photographs from my last shoot of 2009 and first shoot of 2010: A wonderfully contemporary new floating home. Once again the weather gods were on our side and what started out as an overcast morning with a light sprinkle of rain turned turned in to a great afternoon with sunbreaks and dramatic clouds.
I have a love/hate relationship with this type of weather in Seattle. I love the light that we get after a storm. It is so dramatic as it filters through the changing cloud cover. However, the clouds and the light are often changing so quickly that it can become a bit of a frustrating hide-and-seek game to anticipate where and when the sun is going to show up. You’ve got to have your camera set-up and ready and you’ve got to be quick.
Another tricky aspect specific to photographing floating homes is that they are floating (duh ). So they are never perfectly level and the view out the windows changes a bit from shot to shot as they move and bob around on the water. So traditional methods of leveling the camera are pretty much useless as a floating home will sit differently on the water depending on the location of furniture and even people. The movements are subtle, but definitely noticeable.
