    Architecture, Buildings, and Structures

    Lets start a new topic for images. This seems to be a popular but underrepresented for this section of the forum. I will kick it off with a 4x5 image from Tokyo.



    I am looking forward to contributions

    Re: Architecture, Buildings, and Structures

    I’m taking an online course on architectural photography with the Rhode Island School of Design begining this June.
    Professor giving the course is excellent.
    Maybe some of you will sign up and enjoy the course with me.
    In the past RISD photography courses have been very enlightening.

    Excellent idea, Stanley!

    This is the picture that changed me from a guy who liked cameras into a photographer. By which I mean that the image was suddenly more important than the equipment.

    Fabulous Fox




    FOX THEATER, ATLANTA
    Hasselblad 903 SWC + Kodak Ektachrome


    --

    From back in the days when I did this for a living, shot around 1992.
    The client paid for ownership of the originals, but I have a few scraps left from the job.
    The ceiling was/is made of fabric and had lots of stains.

    Hope everyone is doing well.

    Kind of feel weird posting this here as the people watching this thread seem to be the same people that watch the Fuji X thread.

    I don't mind where people post, I look everywhere. So I prefer if people only post every photo just once, but even they don't that's no biggie.

    Btw, I like this image, reminds me of the work of Michael Wolf

    Re: Architecture, Buildings, and Structures

    I have a strange relationship with architecture, because it's a central part of my photography and I use architectural-oriented equipment (i.e., DIY-modified cameras having in-camera movements), but for the most part, my photography is not focused on the buildings.

    Instead, my interest lies with capturing the scenes / moods that surround them -- in some sense, the architectural elements are merely incidental -- which is why I typically photograph late at night. For example:









    Truth be told, I really enjoy the experience of exploring these areas late at night -- always on foot, because no "drive by shooting" for me, thank you! -- and would probably continue to do so even if I wasn't also taking photos. For me, the photography is just a bonus!

    Re: Architecture, Buildings, and Structures

    As mentioned before I'm working on a project to docuemt all the remaining WW1 and WW2 installations around Antwerp on B&W film. Yesterday I took a bicycle ride to two forts that are a bit further from my home (slightly more than 1 hour cycling) and since I had one empty spot in my bag I decided to also take my NEX6 and PZ16-50 along. That way one outing gives me the instant gratification of digital as well as the delayed gratification of seeing the negatives emerge from the development tank


    First Fort Broechem

    1: Main entrance



    2: However the bridge over the moat is gone



    After that I cycled on to Kessel for the second fort of the day. This one was interesting, most forts are usually conceiled by many bushes and trees, but this one is much more visible as the local community is keeping the entire front of the fort free of shrubs

    3: The fort and its reflection in the moat



    4: Main entrance (note the much nicer gate as compared to Fort Broechem above)



    5: The entire front of the fort

    LR stitch of 3 handheld landscape oriented shots

    All NEX6 + E16-50PZ

    Reece Service Station




    Nikon F3 + Hazy Zoom + Kodak VPS

    This was one of the filming locations used in the film, Driving Miss Daisy. It is located in Douglas County Georgia. One of my favorite type of structures to visit and photograph are old gas stations. I like their signage and the old advertising art many have preserved.

    From this morning at sunrise. Citicorp Center. When built, one of the 10 tallest buildings in Manhattan at over 900 feet.

    Fuji X-H1, 100-400 @400mm, Velvia tone curve.


    In recent years, the zoning boards surrendered to the billionaires:

    Same, but @100mm. And that isn't the tallest one...

    Will, your photo reminded me of the Armadillo, or Clyde Auditorium, on the Scottish Event Campus in Glasgow.
    But you had much better light and a nicer sky. Where is that building located?

    That is the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts in Kansas City, Missouri. It is quite an interesting building. The other side has a glass atrium that looks out over the city. Folks here call it their Sidney Opera House.



    The building arcs are under tension from wires in the front which supports a glass atrium which has views over the city (I should post an image one day as it reminds me of the Guggenheim museum in NYC with a white interior and arcing balconies).



    This is one side of the building contains a concert hall with a massive pipe organ (the steel back of the building is on the right with the organ). The other hall is larger and uses lit glass panels instead of wood and has a more traditional theater layout.

    The home of the 200-inch. Or, to put it in more familiar terms, a 16764mm f/3.3 lens. Sharp corner to corner! A bit heavy to carry. Needs a REALLY big tripod.
