The girls of Aerial Innovations TN got a chance to visit one of their major projects on the ground, the Nissan Headquarters in Franklin TN. The AGC Middle TN Chapter sponsored the tour and included an insider’s view to executive offices, kitchen, cafeteria, a newly developed wetlands and, most exciting, the Car Salon.
The Car Salon is a full size photography studio specifically for shooting new vehicles (they even have their own “dressing room”!) In the studio, the entire ceiling is a daylight balanced wall to wall light box. The walls are a seemless mid-tone gray background which they can project anything onto. The seemless part is engineered into the room to prevent any corners or abnormal gradation…a lot of thought was put into this! (maybe a few photographers on the design team….??)
So, when you see those flashy new car ads for Nissan…you’ll know how much simpler they are to shoot than the old fashioned “box studio”. (are they going to have rental time for this thing??)
Thanks to AGC and Skanska (our client on the project), we’ve had fun seeing you build! Congratulations on the dedication, July 23, 2008..welcome to Nashville!
