Join Justin Reznick for an in-depth discussion in this video Photographing a spiral staircase from the bottom, part of Architectural Photography in Chicago: A Fine Art Approach.
- Here we are at the second location,…and we're going to be looking straight up…to the different layers of this incredible staircase.…It's a very different perspective than looking down,…this is a completely different shot.…It's so important to really get both angles…when you get a chance to experience such a unique…architectural wonder as this staircase.…We're going to go ahead and use a similar strategy.…We've got the articulating LCD screen,…which is going to allow me to put the camera out,…neck strap to protect the camera and everything below me,…and we're going to find this composition…using the zoom or the wide-angle lens, in and out.…
If I go to 16, I have a lot of this underneath here,…a lot of that, and it's just too much…and I lose the central focus point…of taking the eye up through the staircase.…If I zoom in all the way to 35,…well then I don't really have a boundary,…and I like a little bit of this,…so I'm kind of searching for that happy medium,…and it's going to be right around there.…I'm at 24 millimeter, OK?…
