I love Chicago and especially the buildings and bridges. Everything there just feels massively solid. I love shooting with the Phase One P65+ and I do a lot of hand held work with it. So, on a visit last year to Chicago I got up early and wandered the streets. This is one of the shots I came back with. I like it because it shows the old rivets and solid steel feel of the bridge and then a modern shiny sky-scraper arising from the right side. Shot with a P65+ and a wide angle lens hand held.
Speaking of architecture, Phase One is going to be holding an Architecture PODAS workshop in Chicago this summer. This will be a unique workshop lead by two of the greatest architecture shooters of today. Each participant will get a Phase One camera and P65+ back to work with. It will be three days of intense interior and exterior shooting as well as classroom time on post production and business. Watch http://www.phaseone.com/podas for news on this soon.
