I ventured out today for another bathroom shoot for Collins Tile and Stone. The skies are still dreary from Hurricane Sandy, but the rain has thankfully stopped.

Yesterday I photographed a beautiful bathroom for Collins Tile and Stone. The tile work was quite intricate and it was one of the largest bathrooms I’ve ever photographed.
Recently, I photographed another bathroom remodel by Collins Tile & Stone which was pretty challenging. The shower had some glass doors with a bright window directly across from the doors so the reflection of the window showed in the shower glass. A polarizing filter really helps cut glare from reflective surfaces. I had recently sold my cheap polarizing filter because it was adversely affecting the quality of my images. But I hadn’t yet ordered a new, higher quality polarizing filter. I really wish I had one for this shoot. So, I just ordered a new one so I have it for the next shoot. To solve the issue, I got some big black garbage bags and covered most of the window with them and then I did quite a bit of editing in Photoshop to remove the reflection of the window. Here are the before and after images:
And here’s one more image that I rather liked that really showcases the company’s tile work on the walls and floor. I don’t usually like images that have the toilet in them, but this one was pretty well hidden by the dividing wall.
Thursday’s adventures included another great bathroom remodel by Collins Tile & Stone.
I had the opportunity to shoot another bathroom remodel by Collins Tile & Stone yesterday. I had a little trouble with this one because I had a pretty small space to work in. It was a rectangular, narrow space with the toilet at one end (which I try not to include in the photos very often) and glass shower doors at the other end (which pretty much act like a mirror reflecting my likeness back unless I’m at an angle). The shower was pretty sweet with two shower heads and beautiful tile.
I had the opportunity to photograph another bathroom remodeled by Collins Tile & Stone on Saturday. I loved the little hexagonal shaped floor tiles, the stand alone tub, and the brightness of the room. Another remodeling job, well done! Here are a few of my favorite shots from the shoot.
I think I need to learn how to edit chrome. My reflection ended up in nearly every faucet. Add that to the list of millions of things I need to learn.
On Thursday, I did a shoot for Collins Tile & Stone featuring tile back splashes. It was some beautiful work in four bathrooms and a kitchen.
For the shot below, I had to lower the tripod down low enough to not be seen in the mirror and I hid behind the partially open door and used my wired remote to trigger the camera.
On Friday, I photographed a new tile floor in a basement for Collins Tile & Stone. The tile was interesting because the coloring and look of it made it look like wood. The room was a little dusty, and I think the photos would have benefited from having a bit of staging to the room. But the floor still looks good!
