During the late fall I photographed for Big Sky Landscaping. Their designs and work are outstanding. Their attention to detail in both the plantings and the hardscapes is remarkable. With the trend, especially in the northwest to create outdoor living spaces as a larger part of the home, Big Sky does a great job.
The most important way t0 approach this type of photography is to pay attention to the light, as it is with most forms of photography. So the early morning or evening light is the most appropriate time to best showcase their designs. This particular assignment was difficult because it is extremely windy in October in the town where I photographed. So working around blowing leaves was a bit challenging.
