Florida Architecture & Interior Design at Twilight

6:45 P.M.

Twilight imbues the South Florida shoreline with intense blue and violet hues.  This is my favorite time of day to be certain, as interior lighting begins to find its harmonious balance with the last few moments of the magic hour’s natural glow.  Photographers and painters alike have been creating mysterious, compelling and yes, “magical”, images during those elusive moments at dusk.  The “blue hour” as it some call it, is particularly effective for architectural and interiors photography because it enables the photographer to find a balance in the natural and artificial light and in this way, color and exposure can be controlled.  When I was shooting independent films years ago, we created some of the most amazing footage for both color as well as black and white films during twilight.  Of course, some of these images are also captured before sunrise, as well.

For me, when shooting interior design, twilight photography is a very effective way of creating ambiance within the interior space, while maintaining a sense of mystery and mood through visible windows.  Looking out into inky black nothingness can be dramatic, but arguably less beautiful as those deep blue hues.  Likewise, when shooting exterior architecture, waiting for the absolute perfect moment to capture a commercial building, or residence allows the interior of the space to glow while maintaining visual balance with the natural glow and accent lights on the outside of the structure.

Interior Architectural Photography – Miami Shoot

The new year has brought with it some wonderful new opportunities, but this recent job is a collaboration with a client with whom I have worked for many years.  This stunning interior design job yielded 20 photographs and I have selected just a few for sharing because they feature some amazing paintings as well as sculptural art.  It is always an honor for me to work with prestigious clientele.  The most satisfying challenge as an architectural photographer is exploring the relationship between photography and design.  This clean, contemporary interior was complemented by bold and colorful artwork as some of the below photographs illustrate.

Grossman Photography – Interior Design Photography for Top Florida Design Firm.

We recently completed shooting a gorgeous apartment in Fort Lauderdale.  This was a very contemporary design by one of South Florida’s most prestigious design firms.  Our photographic approach was to keep it dramatic while maintaining synergy with the clean design.  It has always been my goal to tell my client’s story with my work.  It is incredibly important for my own visual signature to be present within each image, but I feel it is perhaps more essential that my client’s signature style be seen, front and center.  Therefore, when approaching an assignment, I feel it is necessary for me to really have a good sense of what it is my client is saying with his or her own work, and that the design be the absolute focus of the photography.
