Typically, castles medieval churches etc, are large spaces with low levels of daylight and for very good conservation reasons often poorly illuminated. Such interiors demand a highly skilled sympathetic lighting approach.

These man-made
caverns with large open spaces leave nowhere to place lights without them appearing, in the shot. At the same time they cry out for additional illumination to reveal those often hard to see hidden details.

IOP overcome these previously impossible hurdles by using a highly-specialised technique called 'light-painting' involving multiple exposures with high powered roving-flash-heads lighting specific sections of the interior step by step until the entire structure has been covered.

This approach enables us to apply either soft light on reflective areas or harder cross lighting to reveal texture in carvings. yielding a collection of up to sixty-five partially-lit images, totalling up to 2.4gig 16bit files.

This collection of images is then carefully blended together using as much, or as little of each individual exposure, to reveal details in the highest-darkest recesses of interiors without overwhelming the natural ambience of these special places.

Inevitably this technique is time consuming both to shoot, and to computer process afterwards. But;
there really is no other way to successfully breath life into an open space interior, to take light where no light has gone before!

IOP is based in Manchester and Buxton areas but we also cover all of the UK and Europe if requested.
