This week, I photographed a new listing at 135 Prospect Park West in Park Slope. After shutting off the lights, I took one last look at the apartment and noticed how beautiful the natural light was, and I saw what I thought could make a great photograph. I knew it wouldn’t even closely resemble a traditional property shot, but as a photographer, it’s impossible to turn down the chance to capture an image that jumps out at you.
This main image is a 30 second exposure at f/22 or f/16. However, I had to flash the flowers on the nesting table because it was in shadow. I did this using the pocket wizard, which I am really into, and the Canon Speedlite 580EX II. I had a Flex TT5 on the Speedlite and the camera body, and I triggered the shutter and flash with the Mini TT1.
I really like the photograph. This apartment really has a great feel when the lights are off in the afternoon, and I hope that reads with people when they see the listing.
