Here is what Dan had to say about his image:
Wow, thank you so much! I'm incredibly honored especially because there were so many great shots this month. I shot this for one of my very talented designers at a loft in Downtown LA. I had my 24mm tilt shift on my camera but when I started walking around, it felt too wide so I put my 24-105mm on and, since this was basically one big room, there was a good amount of room to move back and get longer shots.
The majority of shots were in the 35-50mm range with this one being at 50mm. I did light this with two AD200s but ended up only using a very small part of those shots for window pulls, since the designer wanted to show the adjoining buildings and that it was, in fact, a downtown loft so these are 95% ambient. I used Lightroom to get me 99% of the way there and Photoshop only to remove a few stray wires.Dan Solomon
