Holiday Inn Express Recap

March 07, 2017  •  1 Comment

Last Monday, I took some photos of the Holiday Inn Express that just went up over on High Crossing Blvd. The COO and owners of the apartment building Devan and I used to live in are involved with the hotel, and this is the third time I've done work for them since we moved last year. As always, it was great working with them, and it's always nice to catch up with the COO/owners. 


I brought my flashes with me, but I decided to go the HDR route. Generally, I'm not a huge fan of HDR photography. Not only do people use HDR photography when it doesn't make sense, but it's incredibly overused. Most of the HDR stuff I've seen is also edited pretty poorly. In a situation like this though, where I'd normally use off-camera flash, HDR saves me a ton of time because I don't have to keep setting up and taking down my flashes every time I move to a new location. HDR also achieves pretty similar results. 


The Holiday Inn Express is one of the nicer chain-hotels I've seen, and I'd definitely recommend checking it out if you're visiting from out of town (I'd say this even if I didn't know the owners).


Here are some of my favorite photos from the shoot:

Very nice work. Holiday Inn Express is my go-to hotel when I am traveling. You have really done this one justice.
