A Shot A Day – 2016 (01/18/2016)

by | Jan 18, 2016 | A Shot A Day 2016 |

“Stacked”

A little throwback to last fall’s photo trek through the campus of The Ohio State University. The athletic center complex and its surrounding buildings is quite visually compelling. Tons of angles, intersections and plays on minimalistic architecture.

A Shot A Day – 2016(B) (018A of 365)-(18-01)

Sony Alpha A7RII, Sony FE 24-70 ZA OSS

ISO 1600 – 1/3 @ f/5.6 – 44mm

I love shooting images at night, especially if the scene offers some reasonable light on the subject, and the background can remain simple and not be a distraction.

This shot required a -3 stop exposure compensation, to ensure that none of the highlights / lighting inside the building ended up burned out.

I think at a 1/3 second shutter speed, one could make the case that Sony’s OSS lens and sensor stabilization are a pretty powerful combination of low light tools.

Careful attention was paid to how the image was framed and where the leading lines started and ended up in the final image. I’d like to say I got that part right, but to be truthful there was a little cropping and rotation required in post-production.
