Don't forget the Details

Prepared some images over the weekend to include in a gallery for a new project. Another hotel guestroom/public space decor project. For part of this project the client is requesting architectural detail images of something that might be considered "Main Street USA".

I get a lot of requests for architectural detail images for these types of projects. Requests that include details of many cities, whether it's DC, Chicago, Boston, Philadelphia, or Dulles or Leesburg, VA. But as importantly, images that could be perceived as the architectural style of those cities. I did a project a little while ago providing all the images for a hotel in Portsmouth, NH. All the images selected by the agency were images I shot in an afternoon in Baltimore. But, they were detail shots from aboard the US Constitution of ropes and pulleys and nautical type thingys. In fact the images from that same group went on to furnish all guestrooms and public space for the Marriott Baltimore Harbor. You can see pages of some of those images starting here in this Maryland Gallery.

So don't forget to shoot the details. I love doing it and it is fun. Having groups of architectural detail images is like having money in the bank. Isn't it a wonderful world we live in that you can create images and instantly market them worldwide!

Here are a few of the images from one group I shared with my client for their presentation regarding this project.
I have something like a million of these:
