Oculus (2 of 2) – Interior

This is a follow up post to the previous one I did on the exterior of this complex. As much as I enjoyed photographing the exterior, I found the interior to be be almost magical and again, it screamed to be monochromatic. As many of you know, I am drawn to geometric shapes and styles with a wide angle slant. I look forward to returning and finding more hidden treasures.

Oculus (1 of 2) – Exterior

During the months of October and November, I spent a fair amount of time in New York for various Olympus events. During one of the earlier events I went to the newly opened Oculus at the World Trade Center station. I was immediately captivated by its design and presence in relationship to the Freedom Tower. I found myself going back several times during my travels to NY trying capture different angles of the structure. Over time I went and found new vantage points to shoot from. There appears to be no limit to different photo opportunities at this place. I am a wide angle shooter and for me, this place screams fisheye & WIDE. I captured all of the images in color but I found black and white works best. If you haven’t seen this place, the next time you are in New York put it on your list of places to see.

State Theatre

A couple of weeks ago I did the “Behind the Curtain” workshop & photo tour at the State Theatre in Easton, PA. This is always a fun event, particularly, since we are granted unobstructed access to this incredibly beautiful gem of a facility. I tell people, as photographers, we get to see the intricate nuances of the various design components in this theatre. Most people, and rightly so, go to the theatre to see a particular performance. However, for me, as a photographer, the main show is in the many incredible masterpieces within the structure. During this event I also had the opportunity to use the new Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II camera. The reason I mention this is I always tell my participants to bring a tripod because of the low light. I now may need to rethink this position. All of the following images were handheld for between one second and 1/60 second at ISO 6,400. The image stabilization and image quality at this high ISO has surpassed all of my expectations. Take a look and you be the judge.
