Welcome to David Lasker Photography. Together with David Lasker Communications, we provide superb images, text and media coverage for architects and designers.
Remember lighting? Like, you know, strobes and soft boxes? Many self-styled architectural photographers today don’t bother to light their shots, relying instead on existing daylight. The telltale sign: incongruous foreground shadows with loss of detail and sparkle in large areas of the picture that no amount of “brushing up” in Lightroom can overcome. Worse, these lazy shutterbugs often shoot at the wrong time of day, resulting in images with too much contrast, such as random jets of glaring sunlight (with blown-out highlights) streaming through the windows that overpower anything else in the room. Because the eye naturally goes to the brightest area of a photo, the viewer gets distracted and isn’t sure where to look. Our experience with composition and technical skill in lighting ensure that David Lasker Photography images always, clearly, convey “what’s the shot.”
