Going Way Back in My Past
I was very fortunate to take a leap back in time to what once I thought would be my photographic career, architecture. I had just finished my first year of school and architecture photography really appealed to me and I was pretty good at it. Obviously that’s not how life unfolded but I still have a sweet spot for it. This past weekend in Austin I had the opportunity to revisit the old flame and a few things came back to mind.
The photo we were after is what you see below, what we used to call a Dusk & Dawn, a photo just when the sun sets and the lights come on. It really only takes a few moments to make that photo but you always arrive early just because. Because you wanna find the right spot, make sure everything is how you imagined it and to simply enjoy the passing of light. There is a time though when you’re waiting for that Dusk & Dawn when it’s great for B&W but not for a color image. Until I was standing on that knoll, I had forgotten that piece of trivia. But as you can see above, the B&W photo though shot at the same time as the color photo above, the B&W has a heck more snap to it. It’s a small thing that you can now tuck in the back of your shooting mind.
