Photographer George Barberis Talks Technique with Popular Photography Magazine

Popular Photography Magazine features commercial photographer George Barberis’ mastery of light in its March/April 2017 issue and it’s worth a read. The article, “Light Repast” shares the ins and outs of a project George completed for Lupulo — a spacious, convivial restaurant in the NoMad neighborhood of Manhattan, New York. Lupulo — “hops” in Portuguese — was designed by architecture and design firm, CRÈME, and marries the simplicity of elegant, contemporary design with a traditional Portuguese coastal environment accented by screens of knotted nautical rope, rustic wood and beautiful sea-blue ceramic tiles. Through his photography, George was able to convey the natural feel of the space — light, open and airy.

George and his assistant pulled off the shoot in only three hours between lunch and dinner shifts. The article gives us some insight into George’s lighting techniques, and we learn how he managed to capture the “color” and sense of place unique to each room. Ultimately, we also glean an understanding of this pro’s approach to the artistry of photography.
