I recently had the opportunity to photograph the exterior of a new arcadia build by Padilla Signature Builder and architect Andre Hicken. The landscape lighting was well placed and there was a lot of interesting architectural details on the front of the home that I wanted to capture. We ultimately settled on an angle that showed off the most interest and included as many interesting architectural elements as possible.
This photograph is a composite of different photos taken during sunset and twilight. The sunset is real, the landscape lighting is real, and I used artificial light to bolster the existing light and add more depth and interest. My tripod was placed on the bed of my truck to get the needed height to separate the front gate from the grass/walkway.
Here is the final image - let me know what you think!
