Cityscapes Outing – Camera Club of Ottawa

This Camera Club of Ottawa outing was on a foggy Sunday morning. The assignment was to shoot urban images in Black and White at 400 ISO within the boundaries of Wellington Street to Laurier Street and Bay Street to Elgin Street. We could submit 6 images in total. These were my shots. Click on the image to find it on my website and you find another link at the bottom of each image to view the colour equivalent. I had to convert from colour in photoshop since the Nikon D70s doesn’t have the capability to shoot B&W. I find it preferable to convert in photoshop anyway.

KAP 2008-37: St. Louis Art Museum, St. Louis, Missouri – July 7, 2008

My tour of the midwest USA took me through the St. Louis Missouri. My first stop was at the Gateway Arch where I kept my photography at ground level as the wind conditions were inappropriate. Permissions might have been an obstacle as well but I had no reason to ask as the wind was almost zero. That same afternoon I went to Forest Park, and after doing a fairly extensive visit with my SLR and tripod I realized the wind had picked up so I returned to the Art Museum to do some aerial work. Both the Museum and the Emerson Grand Basin in front proved to be interesting KAP subjects.

These photos were taken from a camera rig suspended below a kite (Kite Aerial Photography – KAP).
