Architectural Photography in Detroit

Earlier this week I lead a group of photographers in an Architectural Workshop in Detroit. We had expected to start in the main branch of  The Detroit Public Library, and then walk around the DIA and Wayne State area. Well the library proved to be a treasure trove of photographic opportunities to such an extent that we stayed there right up until it was time to eat our dinner before heading to the roof of the Park Shelton to shoot sunset over the Detroit City Skyline.

This image, shot with a Nikon 16mm Nikkor AF Fisheye lens mounted on my Nikon D4 DSLR shows the grandeur of the main room on the third floor of the library.

This image was crafted with my Nikon 16mm Fisheye lens to give a sense of the scope of the third floor space.

After a delicious meal at Fourteen East, located within the Park Shelton, we proceeded to the roof top deck to enjoy a beautiful sunset over the City of Detroit. The shot below is one of many images I created in nik softwares HDR Efex Pro 2. I love the creative control I have with my HDR photography
