When I was approached by BG Studio International, interior designers from New York City to shoot another commercial photography project I was excited to hear that this would be the 3rd cruise ship that they helped design. They already had won awards for this project from just their design renderings alone and they were eagerly awaiting these images for a publication. We only had a limited time to complete a pretty vast shot list aboard Celebrity’s newest ship the Reflection and many challenges came with this project. The beautiful Reflection Suite was among the most challenging with it’s massive wall of windows overlooking the stern of the ship. The room was completely in silhouette and needed to be brought out with strategic strobe lighting to balance the interior with the view from outside, a technique that many interior photographers have had to master.
