The challenges for a Florida architecture photographer can at times be quite numerous.  The main challenge is in dealing with Mother Nature and her changing moods.  One minute sunny, blue skies prevail and the next, thunder, lighting and you are running for cover with cameras in tow!  Last week, we enjoyed a three-day photo shoot in Ft. Lauderdale for one of our long-time clients, Danielle DePerro Designs.  The project was a private residence located on the water.  Very contemporary in both architecture and interior design, we planned on shooting a mix of daytime, dusk and evening images.  Each night we had scheduled dusk shots.  And each night it rained!  As you can see from the photos, we are always prepared with our trusty Canon umbrella and rain ponchos.  We always plan our escape route to the nearest cover should the rain become too heavy or the lightening a little too close. Dusk photos are challenging even on good weather days as they require precise timing, and proper lighting.  As it turned out, we were able to get the images we wanted.  Like the postal service, neither snow, nor rain, nor heat, nor gloom of night will keep us from getting the perfect photo!
