Before and After — SF Architecture 5

The Before and After series focuses on the two or three key creative choices, in terms of composition and processing, that go into creating an image.  Specific technical details about the shot have been left out — you won’t hear me talking about tone curve adjustments and whatnot unless it was a key component of the end result.

Shot #5 from the SF architecture experiment.

Exposure

  • Shutter:  1/500
  • Aperture:  f/4.0
  • ISO: 200
  • Camera:  Canon EOS 1D Mark IV
  • Lens:  Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM (at 135mm)

Composition and Processing

  • I liked the contrasting patterns here.  The lines are so simple and basic, even after I rotated it, but the shadows from a nearby group of trees created a very different set of patterns on the surface.  I like that sort of thing, where the image is grounded in very stable, hard-edged shapes, but then made internally dynamic by a bunch of round and soft ones.
  • Cropped vertically, this wall looks like what it is:  a staggered set of vertical strips casting shadows on the one further back.  Rotating it created a small visual disconnect where it looks less like a wall and more like a pure pattern, closer to my goal for the image.
