Orlando Performing Arts Center

Officially called the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, this new half Billion dollar building is a landmark architectural gem for Orlando.  Designed by Barton Myers in L.A., it houses a 2700 seat hall for Broadway theater events and a 300 seat venue for smaller productions.  A 1700 person acoustic hall will added soon to house ballet and opera.

I was hired by Great Big Circle design firm to photograph the building with people in activity, as they already had some interiors that ended up looking kind of sterile without patrons.  Most of the photos you see here are multiple layers of images so that I could show more people in each shot.  If you look closely, you might notice the same people in different areas of the same photo.  When I shot the exterior image there were no people outside, so I combined that shot with one I took on a different night with patrons exiting the building.

Here is the final:

Here's what the building looked like at sunset before I added people and took out the structure behind.
