Roof Lines – Architectural Photography in Red Deer, Alberta (Canada)

historic home, architectural photography, Red Deer, Alberta

Yesterday was a day for shooting roofs. A local roofing and exteriors firm is updating their website and needed images of some of the projects they had completed.

In addition to photographing the buildings, much of the look of the final image comes down to the editing of the images. Things like making sure color is accurate and that contrast is visually pleasing is all part of creating a polished final image.

The image above has also been altered in the sky area in order to take text. The solid color makes it easier to place text in the image that is easy to read. This technique is also popular if a client is wishing to place their company logo on an image, or wishing to blend an image with surrounding packaging, as in food photography.

Other alterations that occur to create a pleasing image are the blending and darkening of areas of the image in order to highlight the main subject matter, as well as the removal of distracting elements.

The goal is to create the finest image possible for the client whether it is portrait, food, product or architectural photography.

St. Mary’s Church, Red Deer, Alberta – Architectural Photography

(Please click on the images above to view the gallery)

I had the opportunity to be in St. Mary’s Church this evening, a church that makes for very interesting interior photography. This church has dramatic architecture and was originally designed by the architect Douglas Cardinal. The skylights create almost theatrical lighting while the way the ceiling hangs over such a large space is quite amazing.

The timing of this post works out to be quite convenient. Last year I photographed the church on Christmas Eve and posted the images on my other blog, over the past week I  have noticed the post is getting many views with the search words being “St. Mary’s Church mass times”. I thought I would include the mass times for this year for those who are looking (it isn’t that easy to find!).

December 24th – 5:00 pm, 7:30 pm, 10:00 pm, midnight
December 25th – 10:00 am

Mass at St. Mary’s on Christmas is quite something, but remember to arrive very early as the mass is always very, very busy.
