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.

One World Trade Center

As I noted in the previous post, I was in New York a few weeks ago for the Olympus Visionary Summit. In addition to the Brooklyn & Manhattan  bridges, we also shot the One World Trade Center building (aka The Freedom Tower) the next day. Again, we had a lot of fog to deal with. Here are a few of the shots of the exterior of the building. All of the images were taken with the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mk II. I used a combination of the Pro series lenses, including the 7-14mm f2.8, 12-40mm f2.8 and the 40-150mm f2.8. Many of the shots were straight out of the camera with the built-in “Dramatic Tone” filter (one of my favorites).
