Photographing Architectural HDR With People

My client on this project, Gundpartnership in Cambridge Massachusetts, requested that we add lifestyle people to these architectural shots. These images were purely HDR, with no lighting added. Adding additional lighting for fill would offset the the ambience that the lighting design had.

Since shooting HDR is all about bracketing, the exposures could get to be very long. Adding people, not one but several, made this a challenge that I really love. Using wide angle lenses would help with the depth of field and give me more latitude for using faster shutter speeds.

As it turned out, there was no movement or ghosting from the people in the shot. This was accomplished by having every individual use different visual points to concentrate through the brackets.
