Photographer's Note

Today begins a little architectural series on the buildings at the University of British Columbia.

I can't remember which building this was. In fact I couldn't even find it again when I went bact to UBC on the 12th, but I really like this shot. The building looks so insignificant next to those trees (note the tiny doors), and the path of light is really what caught my eye.

I used the spot metre here to really get as high a contrast as I could b/w the light and shadows, while a the same time not severely overexposing the white building. I took this series of pics in the afternoon for that reason as well. I want my shadows black!

There are no people in this shot (nor in my next shot) and that's on purpose. I didn't want the eye to be distracted from the subject. And somehow, the lack of people makes it just a little surreal IMO.

Does it work?

Post-production: curves, saturation.
