Week 18: Behind the Scenes

Location: Ford Foundation, Manhattan. NY.

 

        I was at somewhat at a lost for this week's theme. I didn't have enough time to request permission to "off limits" location, and I didn't want to settle for shooting a behind the scenes photoshoot. So I compromised. The Ford Foundation is not an "off the limits" location, but very few folks seem to know that their atrium garden is open to the public for recreation.

          I visited the building after work, and verified with security about taking photos before I got my camera out. He was super nice! He basically said, "Go crazy!" I walked around the garden twice before deciding on what angle I wanted to shoot from. Ultimately, I decided to do an all encompassing shot with the garden, stairs and offices. I shot with at 18mm portrait.

         I edited the image in Lightroom to tone down the overexposure and adjust the clarity for a sharper overall look. Thereafter, I tweaked the RGB curve to add a matte-like feel to the shot.
