There are a few buildings in Seattle that make me positively giddy to shoot. The Mosler Lofts in Belltown definitely qualifies. I’ve been here twice before but this one, by far, is definitely my favorite.
I shot this cute Craftsman a few months ago and thought it would be fun exercise to break down the shot. In Seattle for the majority of the year we get these gorgeous, overcast days that make shooting interiors absolutely perfect (exteriors is another story). When you have a nice cloud cover the ambient light is so perfectly even that it makes lighting a house a breeze!
This particular day, though, was a rare sunny summer morning. I was getting a lot of very direct, very harsh sunlight through the large window in the living room. On top of that, the composition I was pretty foolish. But! I went for it anyway!
Let’s set this up:
It’s been a crazy busy summer. Most days I’m out shooting by 8:00 am and not back in the office until early evening. It’s been great! This summer has seen quite a few other changes to the Malia Campbell Photography HQ including a new office up in the Greenlake/Woodland Park Zoo area. I’ll be writing a little more about that experience as soon as things slow down a little.
In the meantime, here are a few of my favorites from my shoot out in West Seattle (early!) yesterday morning.
I spent a foggy morning out in West Seattle last week shooting this amazing home. From the moment I stepped into the foyer I knew this was going to be a fun shoot. My clients, the homeowners, built and decorated the house (they’re professionals) (no pressure!) and I wanted to make sure I did it justice. The house (and homeowners!) was so warm and inviting and, despite how large and spacious each room was, had a cozy, intimate feel to it.
Check out my Facebook page for even more photos of this amazing house!
Last week I shared a sneak peek into a shoot I did with Coldwell Banker Bain superstar, Will Wilcox. The listing is live now and I can share a few photos and the full version video of the space. We start out by featuring some of the shared amenities for residents (hello, elaia spa!) and then we take you into the home. Enjoy!
