San Francisco Traditional by Jennifer Hoey Interiors
Believe it or not, there are over 3200 watt-seconds of light being added to this gorgeous library!
In August, I spent a day photographing a San Francisco residence with Jennifer Hoey Interiors, from Ketchum Idaho. I scouted the location about two weeks ahead of time and made a few “concept” photos, and Jennifer and I chose seven to move forward with.
Subtractive lighting played a larger role than additive, for this shot. We blocked out one large window completely, and scrimmed the one in the background, to control the daylight. Then added a little continuous light to finish the shot.
A challenging shot, from every perspective. Jennifer had a massive framed mirror fabricated and assembled on location, to fill the back wall of this dining room. With two dining room tables, our task was to explain how the room worked, while staying out of the shot ourselves, and showcasing that mirror, which is “hung” by some truly impressive hardware.
