The Play of Light and Shadow

One of the things I love to do in architectural photography is to observe how the movement of sunlight throughout the day affects a building’s appearance.

The light casts shadows with interesting helix patterns through the patio overhang.

The light falls on the building in different ways throughout the day, and these changes create dramatic differences in both the interior and exterior of the building. Sometimes it creates interesting patterns, like in this photograph from a recent project I completed at an office remodel in Las Vegas, NV.

The sunlight interacts with the patio structure and creates an interesting helix pattern in the shadows on the ground. It’s a beautiful effect. We anticipated something like this happening during the day, and while working on the interior photographs, we kept an eye on the light conditions on the patio so we could make this photograph at the right time.

I was impressed with the work my client did to transform this building. It was a blank slate to start with--literally just four walls and a roof. My client transformed the space into a beautiful office facility with workstations, offices, conference rooms, a kitchen area, and several places to sit and meet informally. Here are a few more photographs from the project.

The long table is in the dining area, and behind it is a sitting area. Behind that is the reception desk.

Two sofas and a coffee table provide an area to relax while waiting for a meeting.

Here you can see the two separate levels in the office. The conference rooms are on the mezzanine level, and the workstations and offices are on the first level.
