Nice and Normal – Night at the Parking Garage
Way back when, I posted a cool photo of some concrete barriers at night. I took this image on the same evening.
On the other side of the New Mexico State Capitol, there is a parking garage, that is just fine, but not something I’d like to really take photos of for its architectural merit.
But put some darkness around it, and oh yeah, I’d like to shoot it. (: Night, well actually dusk, brings drama to a subject, and it also isolates and simplifies it; the way I like my photos. So I shot the pedestrian entrance to the parking garage, and here it is.
As a note, I didn’t use a tripod, although I should have. Being that it was night, I pumped the ISO all the way up to 2200, which allowed me to handhold my lens at a shutter speed of 1/160. That high of an ISO added some noise/pixelation into the image, which would be distracting if the photo was enlarged, but for this size, and with not trying to lighten the shadows, it’s fine.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
Shot with my 105mm lens at f/2.8.
