Into The Woods

Jaipur-based Studio BluOra, an architectural & interior photography studio, undertakes a project in Sitla, Uttarakhand, and the challenges thereon

Studio BluOra

Designed by Ar. Ravi Kaimal, the private residence project shoot was commissioned by VMZINC. The secluded location, the sloping terrain and the two-sided accessibility was a challenge while carrying the photography equipment. The brief was to focus on the zinc cladding and to highlight its quality of merging seamlessly with the architecture of the building. In order to obtain the right angles that enhance the pure and honest portrayal of the project, a wide angle lens (for the building panorama) and a telephoto lens (for detailed shots) were used.

To maximize the use of the constantly changing natural light owing to the clouds and wind, a trial shoot was done to understand the best sun angles. Due to our complete dependency on natural light to showcase the natural colour of the product, the photo shoot was extended from 6 hours to 12 hours. Keeping in mind the contemporary architectural context of the project, careful attention was paid to frame angles that best showcase the design intent, and which highlight the zinc cladding and emphasize the play of light with architecture.

As architects turned photographers, this private residence shoot put to test not only our architectural knowledge but also our patience and stamina
