Spokane's Cold Storage Building

May 18, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

A lighting manufacturer from Los Angeles contacted me to shoot an old warehouse in Spokane that had just been converted into modern office, loft style apartments, retail, and restaurant space.  The manufacturer had provided both the interior and exterior period lighting fixtures. 

Known as "The Cold Storage" building, built in the early 1900s, it used to house perishables from the railroad which runs directly behind the building.

Edison bulbs in these fixtures give the room a warm cast.

On the below image, I employed a technique called "Focus Stacking" where I blended together 5 shots all focused on different parts of the scene to create an image that appears fully in focus.  This is much more in focus than I could have achieved with simply a high depth of field.  You can see that everything from the near light fixture to the moon is in sharp focus.
