Peak - P.O.T.D 08/09/2014

Black and white architecture photography is something that I have been wanting to try and I found the opportunity to do so last week. I took this photo at Macquarie University because I saw the lines and patterns which I think would work well for this type of photo.  

I used the D800e with the 70-200mm f/2.8 to take this photo, but the most important piece of equipment is the 10stop ND filter which is essential for this type of photography. The settings were 1 minute 45 seconds at f/16 and ISO 50. As you can see there, with the ND filter I can slow down to the shutter speed to blur out the clouds in the background. It was definitely fun to create this photo and I will put together a blogpost about the details once I get more familiar with shooting this type of photos, but for now, I hope you enjoy this sneak peak.
