The yellow and grey sitting room had to be retouched to remove a neighbour’s red car and garage, clearly visible through the window.
I particularly like the darkest rooms. Each of the shots were taken with an extra exposure for the window, which has been stripped-in using Photoshop to give add extra detail to the areas outside.
Long Exposures for the Darkest Rooms
We needed a focal point for the smallest room, so I used the white lilies found in the owners’ kitchen. I felt they would look dramatic against the dark wallpaper in this small bathroom. I wanted only daylight, so I avoided using the room’s warm lighting. The effect is almost monochrome. The exposure was a very long 8 seconds.
