Look For A Different Perspective

I recently had an opportunity to photograph an event at the beautiful Hotel del Coronado for the Arizona Rock Products Association.  This was my first time shooting in this historic Victorian venue, so I was interested in finding something with a different perspective.

The conference’s big dinner was held in the Crown Room. Built in 1888, the sugar pine wood ceilings contain nary a nail – formed entirely by tongue-and-groove, pegs and glue. A real tribute to the craftsmen of the day, it presents a real challenge to photographers. Namely how to light a massive 9300+ square foot room with over 30’ dark ceilings.

Images of the entire room were quite unevenly illuminated. However, by paying attention to some of the key features of the room, I was able to find some interesting angles on the speakers at the podium in the middle of the room.

It’s all about perspective. I think they’ll enjoy these images. Hopefully it won’t go to their heads. What do you think? FYI you can look up ARPA on their website or on Facebook. Check them out – they’re good people!
