Mark recently completed a shoot for JKR Partners architects of two movie theaters in New York City. The trick with these shots — and with nearly everything architectural in the tight confines of NYC — was to make the small spaces look comfortable and even expansive.
In Queens, the designers did a nice job of working the lines in the narrow interiors so they feel uncluttered when you’re in them, but capturing that on camera is another story entirely.
The same goes for the exteriors, this time in Brooklyn, where the theater is actually closely surrounded by other , not so attractive buildings.
Using both a wide-angle lens and a pole to achieve lift-like height, Mark was able to isolate the structure. He captured it at what some call “the magic hour,” also known as twilight.
