My Flickr contact Werner Schwehm took this fantastic image of the interior of the Vienna University of Economics and Business library with his Canon 5D III and a wide angle lens.
Notice how he positioned himself relative to the floor pattern. It works very well.
My flickr contact Roy Savoy took this great picture of the main reading room at the Manhattan branch of the New York Public Library with his Ricoh GR II.
My flickr contact Isabelle Wolter shot this in Paris, France with her Ricoh GR.
The idea of shooting an interior with a big window and the space outside as a background is a great one. Tough exposure to get right and it’s great that Isabelle was willing to silhouette the staircase and escalator railing.
Flickr member chrisd666 took this high contrast image of the interior of the Eaton Center mall in Toronto, Canada with his Sony A7r.
Note that this was shot on a full frame camera with a 10mm lens (very wide angle) which adds to its intensity.
Flickr member Nianci Pan shot this great interior roof detail at One World Trade Center in New York.
My flickr contact James Meeks posted this terrific shot of a wooden floor with some kind of adhesive on it in an old department store in Oklahoma City, taken with his new Ricoh GR II.
Flickr member Nianci Pan posted a terrific shot of the ceiling of the Guggenheim Museum in New York. I’ve shot it before but never with the lower ceiling in the frame which gives it an unworldly perspective.
My flickr contact Andrew Mohrer posted this terrific interior shot of an escalator in New York.
Flickr member Jme shot this at night with a Ricoh GR.
It’s a terrific image but I’m posting it to demonstrate a few things he did:
He placed his Ricoh GR (small camera) on a tripod or support of some kind.
He stopped the aperture down to f/16.
The camera took 8 seconds to expose the image.
Most of us don’t slow down enough to do shots like this although I have to say, if you’re doing wash at 1am you’ve got plenty of spare time to experiment.
Still, one of the things I miss about my Canon 5D and big lens collection is my frequent use of a tripod, which not only gave me more exposure possibilities, but it slowed me down so I could think a bit more about the shot I was taking.
I carry a tabletop tripod everywhere but rarely use it. Note to self: use it more and carry your bigger tripod and a small body plate as well.
I bought the remote shutter release for the Fuji X70 for exactly this reason but have yet to use it. Hopefully this will kick my butt and I’ll get into it.
