Blufftop House by Graham Architecture

graham-newport-ext1 A few photos from a project I photographed earlier this Summer in Newport Beach, CA for Graham Architects and Michael Fullen Design Group. The house is perched on a hill and boasts an unobstructed view West over Balboa Island and out to the Pacific Ocean.

The back exterior was a tricky shot to get as there was no where to put the camera close to the house. So as twilight approached we hustled down to the Balboa Island bridge armed with a 400mm telephoto lens. The multi-second exposure had to be timed just so, as any passing cars caused vibrations on the bridge that blurred the image.
