I'm having trouble finding the right image for a client. I need close ups of office buildings that appear to be gritty or inner city. Buildings can't look too upscale, as that's not my client's business. Mix of small and large businesses are fine, restaurants are fine. Businesses should not be large corporate chains and not apartments. We don't want people in the photos. Thanks for any help you can offer.
This sounds just like my area, so I might be able to go out and snap – however, a bit more info would be useful: do you want a street scene without people, shop/ building fronts, or details? Perhaps if you had photos that are nearly right you could show them to us to give us a better idea. Thank you!
Thank you for the replies, and images. I still would love more images posted, as these aren't quite what the client is looking for. I will post a few that they liked, that weren't quite "it" to get more of a flavor of what they're looking for.
Megkelleher, thanks for the examples. To insert an image click on the 3rd icon (the one right after the Italics button), and enter the image number. I'm including the two images you suggested below for others to see:
I should be able to get some pictures along these lines for you and your client. I'm glad you posted these; I had thought your client wanted something with a larger city feel. A couple of questions -- 1) What would make these images grittier? Is it the colors? Would adding a grunge overlay get the effect you want? Or, does your client want the actual town to be a bit more rundown seeming? 2) What is your deadline?
