If I can I like to show a little of what is outside when I photograph condos. This building used to be a shoe factory. With these conversions in particular windows and what is on the other side of them is very important. This one was a lot of fun because the colors in the unit kind of matched the color pallet outside the window.
The Historic Jacob Schmidt Brewery on West 7th Street in St. Paul. The buildings are being renovated and prepared for their third life as artists lofts and retail space.
This was taken inside a loft I have listed in the Rossmor in downtown St. Paul. I took three bracketed shots and used HDR processing. My goal was to show the view out the window. Â These lofts are about the windows which in this case are 9 feet tall. The walls don’t have that snow white washed out look that is so popular for interior photography but they are not too dark either. Realistic is my goal and the processing brings out all of the fine details including any flaws.
