Photographing hotel exteriors is a big challenge. It is important to work with the background, framing and chromatic range while ensuring that these aspects fit with the type of photograph you want to achieve.
Each element plays its part to create a unique end result that stands out from the rest.
Every detail matters as it contributes to the final effect and as a result, planning is an essential part of this type of work. Space, light, climate, typology of shot, etc.; every aspect must be studied to achieve the best possible photograph.
When photographing exteriors, Roger Méndez always tries to work with the natural light available at the location, choosing the time of day that will produce the best results (sunrise or sunset).
However, sometimes it is necessary to use additional lighting to emphasise specific areas in the image. Once the scene has been photographed, it is carefully edited during the post-production process.
