Creating visual permanence in a world of relentless motion.

Architectural photography during a lightning storm!

I was wrapping up photographing this amazing building for a favorite architect here in Colorado this July. Finishing up the interiors I went outside for the final exterior photos of the day. At first I was disappointed because the sky was dark and the light wasn’t as I had envisioned or planned for. Storms happen, time-tables are revised and flexibility is important as a photographer. I decided to stay and see if anything interesting would develop or maybe clear up fast enough to have a nice sunset. The storm blocked some light, and there was no colorful sunset, but it did eventually turn into an amazing light show. In the end I worked two cameras for over 3 hours as the storm moved past, watching in awe. The final photographs were not as I anticipated, but I’m glad I didn’t pack up and go home because things didn’t go as planned.
