These two projects took us across Indiana to Seymour and Crawfordsville for two very different installations. In Crawfordsville, we photographed the first phase of a walking trail connecting Wabash College with downtown Crawfordsville. In Seymour, we had the opportunity to photograph the St. Louis Streetscape, which is a seating area and play area designed to help the local residents enjoy all that their quaint town has to offer.
On first look, photographing landscape architecture may seem straightforward. However, capturing the perfect outdoor image is a difficult art. Not only is the weather an ever-present issue, but in order to really show off the area, people must be involved in the pictures somehow or the scene loses its energy. Although these images may seem candid in nature, they most certainly are not. Once the angles were chosen, the architect and photographer worked together to place the people where they would accent but not distract from the installation. It was quite the collaborative effort!
