It is truly at the center of what we do .... we must watch the weather every single day. Not just rain or shine but the CONDITIONS. The time of day ... the time of the year. It all adds up to understanding the subject and the Design of the image session.
We were commissioned to photograph the new USC INDOOR PRACTICE FACILITY for our longtime clients Watson Tate Savory Architects in Columbia. WTS also were designers ( among other disciplines ) that delivered the really wonderful "new" Williams Brice Stadium last year.
This year as we worked to determine a game plan we realized that with Fall comes really "skitzo" weather .... every conceivable weather condition is possible in Columbia in the late summer/fall. We watched the morning of the shoot as the clouds hung over with that humid haze we get.
We decided to go anyway and late in the afternoon things burned off and we got great conditions for this time of year. A great afternoon glow with the humid haze burned off as it cooled off this was shot from the upper deck of the Stadium itself .....
