Shooting Architecture on Location With Mike Butler in Bogota, Colombia
We’ve featured architectural photographer Mike Butler before, when he shot the Intercontinental Hotel in Miami, FL. This time, Mike heads to Bogota, Colombia, to shoot the Virgilio Barco Library using a slew of hot lights and assistants. If you’ve ever wondered why it takes 8 hours to create a single architectural image, this BTS will show you exactly why. This video shows a number of awesome things: from the way he orchestrates his shoots and lights structures, to the problem solving he had to employ to overcome a few unforeseen weather issues while on location. Check out the clever use of headsets to direct his assistants and deal with lighting problems on the fly, as well.
