Here are a few shots from my new Digital SLR. A friend who is a pro showed me a few tricks on my camera and made the pics come out a lot better than the first few i took. I am still waiting to see the pictures he took while we were out there. i will post those when i get them.

Very nice job! I like the under the counter lighting. Does the fan cause the light to flicker when the blades are moving?

Nope, after someone mentioned that here before, i changed my locations a little.

What did you use to light the cooking area, I have a similar situation coming up. Haven't even given it thought yet...

I like the light level of the kitchen area. Very nice project. Do you have down lighting onto the chairs and table in the yard, or is that indirect lighting that is doing this?

Looks sweet!

Nice work..

Very, Very nice. Not overdone. Good example showing when less is more.
I am most interested in camera settings that allowed such nice renderings of your work. I know the subjectt has to be good or thje pictures look far worse, but your light balance is spot on.

Bravo !!!

i have not looked to see what settings produced the best pics, but i used a Canon 20D digital SLR with a 17-85 lens in manual mode. we pritty much found one decent setting for the f-stop (10 or 11) then adjusted the shutter speed to get the desired results. most of the time i would pic a shot and bracket up and down about 4 speeds. Of course a tripod is an necessity.

thanks for all the compliments guys. this was my first lighting job and was happy with the results. i now have a great upsale opportunity every time i sell a pergola. I show them these pics and upsell area lighting and a ceiling fan. Of course while i am builind the pergola i take out a Unique demo kit and light the front of the house. i expect this will tease them just enough to get me a sale here and there.

so is the table down lit or not? I guess I'm just not important enough to get a response?

Excellent work and pics.

The table is lit by a wall lamp that is over by the garage door which is about 10ft away. there was nothing really close by and the roof line was two stories tall, so i didn't try to down light it.
