While I was walking around outside the Capitol in between Ryan & Julie’s wedding ceremony and reception, I was looking for a shot with a unique angle. I’d already taken a bunch of pictures straight on, but needed something else. It was just the right time of day where I could get the sun and the building in the shot with my lens set at 12mm. Although I probably should have taken my 5 bracketed shots centered around a higher exposure (maybe +0.7EV or 1EV) due to the camera adjusting exposure based on the sun’s light and leaving the building darker (even in the +2EV image), I think it turned out pretty well. Let me know your thoughts and whether you have any questions!
Since I made everyone wait so long for this second installment of Chicago Beauty, I’ll give you two for the price of one. The previous post in this series describes my intention for posting these images. The sky was a wonderful painting of many colors that evening, and I couldn’t have been in a better location to observe it. I’ll have another couple images coming your way in tomorrow night’s post. And I promise to actually post them tomorrow night. In the mean time, enjoy these images, leave a comment, and share with others using Facebook and Twitter!
