Under the staircase

Canon 7d/ Canon 17-40mm F4 L series lens. UV filter. Induro tripod and ballhead. Three image HDR. Initial capture @ ISO 100, 23mm, F 11 @ 1 second. Spiral staircase at a home in Shelburne, Vermont.

As you know I was doing some commercial photography for a client several weeks ago in a beautiful home in Shelburne, Vermont. This home was part of a Green Homes tour where you were able to visit several homes in the area that were built with all of the latest energy-efficient methods and construction. This home that I was in has a stunning three floor spiral staircase made with reclaimed wood from the building lot itself.

In an effort to get all angles of these stairs I shot a HDR image from up above and this image from the middle of the house. The above image was my contortionists shot as I had to lay on my back on the floor and try to compose and shoot this HDR image of the stairs from below. The bottom level was a very tight, small entry way so this shot was quite difficult to compose and shoot. I personally did not like this image as much as the other two in this series but let me know what you think..Which one presents the stairs in the best way?

  1. Personally, I like this shot! Its a great image with the stair rail spiraling into the center of the frame. For commercial use, I might have to go with “Up or Down” since it offers a functional view as well as being a beautiful photo. Both are great work Andy!

    • Thanks Aaron…IT was a fairly large home…There was a three season room on the back that stuck out so it seemed like you were surrounded by the forest on the lot. Great views of Lake Champlain!
