Kettler Capitals Iceplex at Dawn

This image was taken at dawn at the Kettler Capitals Iceplex practice rink and Corporate Headquarters in Arlington Virginia.

When Judy Davis met the client at the site at 5am, heavy fog was forecasted for the morning commute. As she was preparing the interior, her assistant was setting up supplemental lighting, and the client was cleaning up and removing unsightly items in the perimeter offices and conference room in the lower right windows.

HDP tries to prepare our clients when we say that dusk and dawn shots are intense in set-up and preparation. We race the sun for that perfect moment of balance, interior light to exterior ambient light ratio. Since the fog was so heavy, when Judy finished shooting, the client turned to her and asked "Did we get the shot?"

Once the image was proofed and emailed, the client loved the shot! They presented it at the 2007 NAIOP Awards ceremony in which they won Best Building Award of Excellence.
