“Cleveland”…My Ongoing Personal Project
February 1, 2016 § 6 Comments
My “Cleveland” project is a personal project that’s near and dear to my heart and therefore will be a continuing project for as long as I can shoot pictures. I hope the Cleveland people enjoy them as much as I do not only as Cleveland images, but for the photography in general, and I hope the non-Cleveland viewers enjoy them as location shots and are not bored out of their minds. Anyhow, last week my wife said I have to shoot the Greyhound Bus Terminal before they tear it down. She loved the art-deco exterior, and kept bugging me to shoot it. After I shot the exterior, we went in and I was able to shoot a couple of interior images before we heard the front desk calling security. I’m pretty sure my wife and I don’t look like terrorists, but I wasn’t looking forward to explaining why I thought this dark, dank, lonely looking place was so interesting to me! The Playhouse Square area was all together different. I’m amazed at how much renovation has been done to this area of Cleveland and other areas as well. I had been reading about “the chandelier” in the newspaper, but really didn’t know what it was all about. It’s really beautiful and totally interesting, really adding a lot of interest to that particular intersection. I photographed the other entrance to the Playhouse Square area as well. All but the single blue US Building image were shot with auto bracketing 3 frames(normal/1 stop under and 1 stop over) and processing with my new Aurora HDR post processing program. I used my Sony A6000 mirrorless camera. My Sony A6000 is my go to camera now whether I’m shooting on location like these images or even my studio work like the flowers I shot for last week’s blog. Again, I hope Clevelanders and non-Clevelanders alike enjoy these images.
