Architectural Shadows

Continuing with trend for some architectural photography I was out as the sun was setting so I had a lot of shadows to play with. Photography is nothing but light and capturing it. Shadows are just apart of light and make the light more interesting. It gives what otherwise would be a dull building image a bit more depth and drama.

The other thing I want to point is that all these photos were shot on what amounts to be a consumer level camera the Panasonic G5 and 40+ year old lens, my Nikon 55 1.2 (the lens cost more then the camera). This was all manual focus and just me looking through a viewfinder. It goes to show that while I have very expensive cameras and lenses that do have their uses, you don’t need thousands of dollars in camera gear to produce a great image. Just time and patience to take select your shots. A few minutes post processing and you have something of quality and your gear becomes irrelevant.

Enjoy

  1. Nice shot of the buildings with the sun hitting them just so to give them life to the architecture of each building.

    1. The Nikon isn’t that special to be honest. I bought it on a whim at a camera show more for the sake of “LOOK A 1.2 LENS”. The focal length on a micro 4/3 camera gives a nice 110mm reach but I could equally use my 90mm or my 120mm or an adapted 50mm. I was stopped down for the shots because the Nikon isn’t what you call the sharpest lens wide open.

      1. Oh no way, well thanks for the info! I used to use a Canon 50mm 1.2 (got rid of it cuz of size and weight), so I know how useful it can be, but if it’s not sharp, then it’s useless haha. Hope you got a good deal on it at least 😉
