Posts Tagged ‘Nelson Atkins Art Museum’

Last night I managed to run a successful date and take some great images…with no tripod. Man I’m good!!! ūüôā

I took these image at the Nelson Atkins Art Museum in Kansas City. I was in the mood for something a little different when I processed thes images, hence the black and white. The museum contains such intricate deatail that color can detract from. I wanted to capture the variety in tones as well as possible. These images were all taken with my Canon 5D and 17-40mm f/4L lens. Since I didn’t have a tripod with me I used benches, railings, and the floor as my rest. I did not want to sacrifice image quality by using a higher ISO and hand holding the camera. I am very pleased with the results. I hope you enjoy and take a look at my slideshow on flickr of more Nelson Atkins shots. http://flickr.com/photos/matthewsphotography/tags/nelsonatkinsartmuseum/show/

I will be adding more throughout the week so check back soon.

After numerous visits to the Nelson Atkins Art Museum, I strove for a more original angle. Due to the ice on what is usually a large reflection pool, I was able to walk out and take this image. Moments later I was ordered off the ice by an anonymous security guard over the speaker system. I promptly walked off the ice, but not until I made sure I had in deed gotten the shot I wanted. ūüôā

I took some images on Sunday that are somewhat unique but seem to contain artistic value. I hope you find pleasure in viewing them. Here is what I did.

I was in the passenger seat of a vehicle with my Canon 5D and was thinking about how I could make an overcast day exciting. I have done a hundred shots from my car, but they all have looked the same. You have a road with streaking lines and maybe some lights from cars in the image. A pretty typical shot. Well, I mixed things up a little by panning horizontally with objects alongside the road. Slowing the shutter enough to capture motion, but just short enough to contain some sort of sharpnes. I really enjoy the emotion of these images and I hope they stimulate some sort response from you too.

I am off to Kansas City with my buddy William now. I have some real cool ideas that will hopfully turn out how I imagine them. I believe we will be hitting the Nelson Atkins Art Museum, but probably won’t even go inside. The architecture around the museum is outstanding! I highly recommend a visit there. I am thinking we will have to get under some lit up buildings and shoot the lights at night.¬†Be ready for some HDR madness!!!¬†
