In the fall I took some renovation photos of the new entrance and work spaces completed by Neagley & Chase Construction Company for GE Healthcare’s Burlington Vermont facility. I was able to see this project in progress while taking one of their project leader’s head shots so it was fun to see the final product.
The building housed IDX until it was acquired in 2006 by GE who recently needed to update and expand their space inside the building which houses other businesses as well. While cubicles and empty offices sounds boring on paper, there’s a lot of pattern and geometry that can be worked into these images. While some images sustain a monochromatic palette, others have infusions of color coming from the clear blue sky visible in the windows.
With some of the spaces I used the light painting technique to subtly add dimension where needed, while in others I composited exposures to create a depth of tonal range. There were only two exterior angles I shot but for both I used a circular polarizer to adjust the glare on the mirrored windows. The foliage timing was perfect as the blazing yellow leaves on the black walnut trees provided bold color contrast for the exterior images.
Below are some of my favorites.
Light floods the space through expansive windows. I was so glad for the blue sky which really highlighted their size.
The hallway was another bright space.
