10-31-13 Utah State Capitol Building (HDR)

2013 10-31 Utah State Capitol (HDR) by Watertown, South Dakota, photographer Scott Shephard

When I walked into the Utah State Capitol building at 8am a couple days ago, I didn’t know what to expect. It was, of course, architecturally impressive. But I was even more impressed by the fact that I had the place to myself. The dominant feature of the interior of the capitol is the white and gray marble that decorates it and though this photo started out in full color, I chose black and white to help you see this.

I’m not sure that perfectl symmetry results in “art” but my architectural interiors are often characterized by this. And I’ll have to admit that I worked pretty hard at getting the two halves perfectly balanced in this scene.

Shame on me, incidentally, for not bringing a tripod on this trip. Shooting HDR series in marginal light is made much more hit and miss. I know that any photographer worth his/her salt works with one. Shooting HDR series in marginal light is difficult. From now on, I will try not to leave home without one. . .
