This image was taken in the Fonthill Study, one of my favorite rooms.  Henry Mercer spent much of his time here.  There are four desks in different locations in the room.  Each one was placed to make the best use of light at a specific time of the day.

This image was taken using natural light.  Multiple exposures were blended together to balance the overall exposure and maintain shadows and the light patterns on the floor.  I used Color Efex Pro’s tonal contrast to pop the tree out from the background.
