'Where Art Meets Architecture 3' BTS: The Final Episode

A few months ago we released "Where Art Meets Architecture 3" with Mike Kelley, a photography tutorial that covers photographing hotels and resorts as well as the business of high-end architectural photography. For the past few months, we have also been releasing a behind-the-scenes series on the creation of this tutorial. Today we are finally releasing episode 8 which is also the final episode of this series.

If you're interested in Mike's work but you fear that "Where Art Meets Architecture 3" may be too advanced for you, make sure you check out "Where Art Meets Architecture 1" and "Where Art Meets Architecture 2." If you're just getting into architectural photography, either of those tutorials would be a great place to start.

If you haven't seen the previous episodes from this season or the last, you can check out PTW 2 BTS here and every episode from this season here (we didn't film a BTS series with the first tutorial). 

Thanks for watching and if you'd like more BTS fun, we are currently releasing "Photographing The World 3: Behind the Scenes."

Ahaha guys , sometimes you are the only reason I laugh. You are great :)

I've had the same experience with lightning. I didn't see the lightning strike, but lightning came in from our cable TV line; there was a big KABOOM! and the computer I was working on did a PSOD (Pink Screen of Death) as opposed to the Blue Screen of Death. It fried the cable modem, the wired cable router, the ethernet port on the motherboard of a computer, the ethernet card on another, and the TV.
Two of the things I did in the aftermath was:
1) drive in a 6 ft ground rod by the cable entrance. Not one of those tiny "Radio Shack" ground rods that can be driven in with a hammer. This required a ladder and a sledge hammer to start the process.
2) Electrically tie the cable ground to the power ground. I hired an electrician to do this for me.
I learned those two items from the NEC (National Electrical Code book).
