A Tiny House in Martha Stewart Living

I had a hard time coming up with the right anecdote about this shoot featured in Martha Stewart Living. There are so many ways to describe it. It was the smallest house I’ve ever shot featured in the biggest magazine I’ve ever been in. It’s funny how the simplest shots take the longest time. Jessica Helgerson is an amazing interior designer! The house was so small, that for one shot I had to shoot from a window outside. I used strobes, daylight, hot lights, and incandescent lights. I retouched the shots to make them look more natural. I shot this almost a year ago and had to wait till now to show them off. It just goes on and on.

I say this a lot, but I’m very proud of this project, how the photos turned out, and that it was published in a great magazine that really highlights photography. But, I certainly can’t take all the credit.  Without Jessica Helgerson’s design talent and eye for styling, these shots would just be okay. Collaborating with her brings the work to a whole new level and I am thrilled we’re both receiving recognition on a national level. She definitely deserves it and I feel very grateful that I get to photograph her projects. Here are the rest of the pages and the shots on their own. Enjoy.

    What a beautiful spread! I especially like the photo you have chosen for your landing page. It looks like everything has been casually placed. Congratulations to you and the stylist!ReplyCancel

    Your pictures don’t show any distortion and all lines are clean straight. I was wondering which lenses do you generaly use for this kind of work. Is a classic zoom 16-35mm f/2.8 enough or do you resort to specific lenses like tilt-shift or ultrawide prime lens ? Regarding lens distortion, do you spend a lot of time with postprocessing in PS or whatever ? Thanks for sharing.ReplyCancel
