On the morning before this shoot, I ran into the General Manager at the hotel lobby and he had only few words for me, “Don’t make it too creative” for obvious reason, it’s a hotel and pictures need to be “appropriate for corporate use.” Few hours later, working right into lunch hour I produced this set to be rewarded with Radisson’s amazing Caesar Salad followed by a large serving of cappuccino.
Staff prepare the board room table with bottled water, glass and writing materials.
Three remotely triggered flashes were used for this shot mainly to balance ambient light and lift shadows. I turned the seats at an angle to add a bit of personality. Carefully positioned lights bring out the moire patterns from the seat upholstery, adds character to an otherwise mundane shot.
