May 5, 2010, Law School Arches

Walking by the Law School on the way home, I began looking at the arches again.  I don't think that I have photographed them from this angle yet.  I liked the results.  I think this might be the best one yet.

Lessons Learned:
  • It's very difficult to set up a symmetrical photo with a wide angle lens.  Does anybody have any tips?  Anybody?
Photo details: Exposure time 1/30 sec, Aperture f/4.0, ISO 400, Focal Length 17 mm, Lens Canon EF 17-40mm, hand held (I didn't have my tripod with me.  I think I want to go back when the sign isn't on the door, and I have my tripod).

Fantastic shot! I love how the depth is created through the shadows, etc. As I said before... you need to try stereo...ing this.

I love this one! The lines, the symmetry, the perspective...

This is fantastic Steve! No, I don't have any tip, and I think the special in this picture is asymmetry.
Great shoot!

Love the arches, and the complex lines they create - I just get lost in it - so mesmerizing! Cavernous archways are probably my most favorite architectural elements, especially when photographed!
