While traveling back home, I had the opportunity to wander around Dallas, TX and take some photos. Here we have two shots of the Fountain Place, designed by master architect I.M. Pei.
The original shot was taken with a Holga Pinhole Wide on Kodak Ektar 100. Since it was a breezy, cloudy day, I decided to throw on a 6 stop neutral density filter to show a lot of movement in the sky. Basically, a neutral density filter doesn’t change the tone of the image, it just requires a longer shutter speed. This is how photographers get that ‘soft’ look with waterfalls or running streams. For the record, I never photoshop my images. Yet, this time around I wanted to see how this shot would look in black and white, so I also scanned it thus. In the future, I’ll probably try out some black and white film for shots of this nature.
