I’m in love with a camera.
After two years of shooting with a Canon 7D that confounded me from day one, I recently/ finally made the leap to the professional-grade 5D Mark III. I won’t go into my laundry list of complaints about the 7D and its limitations, but suffice to say that the quality of the images produced by the 5D make the 7D look like an impressionist painter.
The above photo was shot as-is – no Photoshopping or editing of any kind. The sharpness of the detail, particularly on the medallions lining the vaulted ceiling, is incredible… especially considering that I shot this at 1/15 of a second. Without a tripod. Because I’m basically a rock star.
Camera: Canon 5D Mark III
Lens: EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM
Exposure: 1/15 sec at f/8.0
Focal Length: 45 mm
With its undulating walls of white and clear glass designed to resemble billowing sails on a sailboat, I was smitten with this Frank Gehry creation from the moment I laid eyes on it. Built as the HQ of Barry Diller’s media and internet company, IAC (InterActiveCorp), this was Gehry’s first building in NYC. And his first glass building too.
