29 July 2011
After today's class I went to the library next door and took a whole host of photos. I was working on manual settings, white balance, framing, and perspective. I came around the corner and caught my reflection in the glass. I thought it would be fun to snap a "portrait" of me, with the portraits of the university presidents below (I'm pretty sure that's who they are). I also thought including the books was a nice side note to remind the viewer we were in the library. What do you think?
More Weekend Reflections HERE.
Except for a bit of cropping, this is SOOC. There is an atrium in the middle of the building. This means there is a combination of natural light pouring in and mixing with the fluorescent. I played with the white balance and found that parts of the building called for the sunlight setting, while others did better with fluorescent or cloudy setting. I read on a blog the other day that many folks find the cloudy choice to be useful inside buildings not using regular light bulbs (tungsten) lighting. Seems to work for me.
More library shots coming for SOCC Sunday.
