Some highlights from my photo shoot for Suburban Inns of the Hampton Inn in Holland, Michigan! I find hotels to be hands-down the most challenging type of space to shoot. You have to work around the day-to-day operations of a busy hotel, and there is often very little natural light to work with. For a shot of a hotel room, for example, the standard main shot requires shooting straight into the one natural light source of the room—the window! (Not to mention, space is tight, so camera position and focal length options are very limited.) While I typically prefer all lights turned off in my photos to avoid overexposed light fixtures and undesirable color casts, hotels are a bit of an exception, in that it seems customary for lights to be turned on in this genre of photography. The way I combat the lack of natural light and blown-out light fixtures is by bouncing a few flashes into the ceiling, one side at a time, and then of course, masking them out later in Photoshop so it looks like they were never there.
