The Broad Gallery - (547 E Circle Dr, East Lansing, MI ) Is one of the latest architectural wonders to be added to the community. It has some of the most incredible angles and reflective surfaces. A photographers feast. So lets shoot it! It will be a good exercise in Architectural photography. There are also a number of surrounding older buildings that have a lot of character.
Parking at MSU is notoriously challenging. Let's meet at the usual classroom parking lot at 6:30 and plan on being at the gallery at 6:50. I will do one of my famous mini-lectures for a few minutes and then cut you loose.
If you can't make the car pool, meet us at the gallery at that time. Let's meet by the front door of the building. And yes, it is closed, at 5:00PM! So all of the shots will be of the outside. Bring a wide lens, a long lens, a tripod, or whatever you want to play with. No requirements. We might make fun of people with camera phones.
Oh yeah, the weather. Who knows? But plan B (inclement weather) is meet at the classroom and we will figure out a way to amuse ourselves. (In a warm dry classroom.)
Below are a couple of shots Michele and I took at the gallery last weekend to hopefully inspire you! Don't forget to RSVP.
And also don't forget there are some classes coming up including DSLR Lenses and the Basics Workshop on Saturday.
