Week 27, Day 194, November 3, 2009, Duffield Hall, Cornell University


Daylight Savings time has ended, so it is dark by the time I arrive home after a day of work.

I've been taking my camera to work, and taking a few photos as I walk to the bus to catch a ride home.

Most of the buildings at Cornell that I have shown so far have been the older buildings.  I tend to find older buildings more interesting.

I do find this building intriguing.  It's called Duffield Hall.  The large "box" hanging off the side of the building is a wonderful conference room.  It also has a very nice balcony overlooking the Engineering Quad of Cornell University.  Inside there is a huge atrium with lots of study spaces, as well as a nice little sandwich shop.  It's the perfect place to go on a cold winter day.  It has a feeling of the open outside without the cold temperatures.

Lessons Learned:
  • I will probably be taking many more inside photos during the week, or attempted outside night shots.  This will be a new learning experience for me.
Do you have any tips for inside photography, or night time shooting?

Photo details: Exposure time 1/320 sec, Aperture f/4.0, ISO 1600, Focal Length 17 mm, 35 mm equivalent focal length 27mm, Lens Canon EF 17-40mm, hand held.

Nighttime: use a tripod and shutter release
Inside: correct color balance for artificial light

But judging from your photos it looks like you already know this???
