Flatiron in Situ
It has been crazy since I got back, and I am trying to get the magazine ready to be published at the end of this month, or early next. On top of that, family dramas, not much sleep and working, it is all getting on top of me. I also have quite a few articles I have to write for dPS, and one of them I need to get done straight away.
As I was thinking about that article and what to do I remembered the morning I had gone to the Flatiron building. When I was there I tried to take photos at different angles and to give it a sense of place, or to show it in situ. I used different lenses to help get that. I also wanted to remember the detail so I took some close ups of it. I might never get to go back and I want to remember how it was.
I used the 35mm lens from Nikon, then I put the camera on the Joby Gorillapod with the Tamron 15-30mm lens, and finally used the Tamron 28-300mm for the detail. The 15-30mm gives some weird angles, but I remember a lecturer at uni saying something about the nature of the thing you were working with. The odd leaning is definitely an element of that very wide lens and I’ve decided I should just go with it.
I am going to leave you with a gallery now, I hope it helps you to understand how the flatiron is and what it looks like in its surroundings.
