Last Wednesday I filled in on a photo shoot for Marquette Limo’s recently renovated Pink Limousine. It’s quite the eye catcher. Being late night and asked at the last minute, it wasn’t the best of conditions but was still a fun shoot.
Thanks to Jesse Schramm and Jeff LaValley from Checkered Cab and Marquettelimo.com, Upfront & Company, and some of its patrons for stepping in, the band Octopus, and the three great girls from NMU who sportingly agreed to get in our shots outside the Wooden Nickel!
I know a main line of thought for photographers is to only put their best work out but since my background is also in English and education where revision and iteration are important, I thought I’d share these to get some feedback.
These are first draft photo’s to get an idea for best times of light and general ideas on composition. Any suggestions on good architecture composition techniques welcome as not something I studied much.
Saturday evening after the Ore to Shore, fog rolled in along with an ore boat I could hear laying on its fog horn every so often. So I went up toward the dock near Marquette’s Presque Isle to see the ship coming in.
When turning to leave, I noticed the towers from the power plant disappeared in the air behind me and not even its lights penetrated the fog.
I’ve also been wanting to play with HDR methods a little so thought I’d try it on this and the ore boat, but there wasn’t enough contrast with the ore boat to get anything I liked plus its more difficult with even the slow movement of the boat and calm water.
