Barchester Spires care home, Lichfield

August 13, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

I was commissioned by Harris Irwin architects to provide marketing photos of this new care home. The building itself was (unlike some of my subjects) in pristine condition, which was very helpful in preparing each shot.  Here, I am showing some of the exteriors. These images show the available elevations of the building. All are in sunlight, which meant I had to be on site for a long period. The front (north) elevation was only sunlit in the early evening. As only a few residents and staff were present, the home being newly opened, it was possible to have this elevation free from cars and other obstructions, and I'm grateful to the staff for facilitating this. Because of the length of this facade and the relatively narrow car park in front of it, I had to use the Sigma 12-24 at near shortest focal length to fit it in the shot. All the other images are taken either with the Canon TS-E17 shift lens or EF24-105, the latter requiring perspective and lens distortion correction in Photoshop.

Images of the interiors and 'blue hour' dusk shots will be posted later.
