New House in Sonoma

Here’s a project we photographed recently for Leff Construction. We decided to photograph the exterior at dusk since there was no real landscaping and we thought we could emphasize the drama of the house without the emphasizing the landscaping or lack thereof. We had the homeowner mow the weeds, which resulted in a illusion of a green front lawn. In a month this is likely to be brown dried weeds. Is our success serendipity or the result of good planning? The photo shoot involved photographing both interior spaces as well as exterior. We started at noon since we wanted to have the sun high in the sky for some of the interior shots. After photographing the interior we took a nice break for dinner and then proceeded with the exterior photography.
