This is another impromptu shot from my quick stop at ASU. While cutting through campus I passed by this parking garage with a spiral staircase. Sensing a shot I pulled over to take a look. The first thing I thought was, man I wish I owned a fisheye. After pondering that for a few seconds I grabbed some brackets.
When I started processing this one I wasn’t sure the direction to take. This staircase did not have the extreme depth like you find in a grand hotel or other tall building. Hmm. The one area I did want to focus on or actually blur was the outer railings. Since they were in the foreground and larger I wanted to blur them slightly and focus attention to the “eye” of the picture. A little soft radial blur and mission accomplished.
Like most photogs I generally carry my camera with me at all times in hopes of capturing that next prize winning photo. While these images from ASU may not win a prize, they still give me justification for lugging that old camera gear around. I’ll take it.
Until next time…
