Fstoppers – Where Art Meets Architecture 4 – Mike Kelley

It’s been five years since Fstoppers teamed up with Mike Kelley and during that time Mike’s career as an architectural photographer has reached new heights. For the fourth instalment of Where Art Meets Architecture, we wanted to take you to some of the most expensive homes in Los Angeles to learn Mike’s refined photographic process that has helped him book the biggest jobs of his career. In this tutorial, you’ll learn all of Mike’s updated techniques when shooting, editing, and running his business.

Locations and Shooting
Most of the locations in this tutorial are multi-million dollar homes designed by incredible architects who kept lighting at the forefront of their design. When you walk through these spaces, it’s often hard to find a bad angle or poor lighting conditions. Instead of light painting most of his shots, as has been his process in the past, Mike focuses more on using available light and narrowing down his shot list and compositions to create stunning, artistic, architectural photographs. During the shooting portion of each lesson, Mike covers a variety of topics including

  • Scouting to narrow down the most important shots
  • Maximizing the time of day for best lighting conditions in any space
  • Tightening compositions to deliver more graphic architectural photos
  • Incorporating supplemental lighting only when it adds to the photo
  • Staging and simplifying a space
  • Shooting infinity pools
  • Creatively incorporating or removing reflections
  • Street shooting with uncontrolled environments
