Loop Optometry / by Jean Bai

The last two weeks have been pretty busy. I went on 3 location scouts for projects I'm shooting in March, had two trial shoots for clients, and wrapped up another shoot for Acadia Architecture.

Here are 4 interior shots for Zero Ten Design's Loop Optometry office in SOMA. Most people seem confused to hear that I don't use my own lighting in most shoots. I still rely heavily on Photoshop with bracketed exposures - it's how I grab that natural look in the photos below. It's a bit more stressful, since it relies on working with rapidly changing light during the shoot. I guess the challenge excites me and the results keep me working that way.

It's been a while since I have the pleasure of working with natural light flooding in from the windows. I made the most of it with this immaculate space.

Lot's of thanks to May Szeto and her team at Loop Optometry for allowing us to shoot this space on a Friday afternoon!
