A night shot pocessed when Lightroom was at its worst. I remember that now. Thankfully all that is now behind me/ all of us Lightroom users.
How I got the shot
Taking the image was fine - I just had to get the lights left on and wait for cars to stop pulling into the car park! It was my third visit, so I knew which shots I wanted to get. And I knew that cars pulled in on the right, headlights shining straight on the facade of the building.
Be prepared - which I was. I took these images during a break in the traffic!
A word on composition
This was the only location from which I could fit in the whole of the sign and the extension - the critical parts of this photo for the architects, Etchingham Morris Architecture Limited.
And what you can tell from this photo is that there are loads of trees that I was stood amoongst to take this shot. If I moved back the trees appear in the shot.
Somtimes compostion is nothing more than moving around to get the right image, like in this case.
I compose my images carefully, and rarely crop an architectural image. This was pointed out to me in my BIPP portfolio review, which I had not noticed or thought about before.
My application for Associateship of the BIPP was successful, hence me posting my entire portfolio in my photography blog. Well it is my blog after all so why not??
Three exposures, 1/4 second, 1/15th second, 1 second, all at F8, ISO400.
Back-button focus, 10 second self timer.
And that is that - portfolio done. Well not quite. I am going to post a couple of videos on my photography blog whilst I reflect on how I have evolved a photographer over the period of the images in my portfolio being taken.
In the meantime, you can view the 40 images on my architectural photography portfolio page.
