When NUIG asked me to photograph their new library extension building, they mentioned that they would like something dramatic. So I looked at the building and felt that is would look best at sunset. I set up my tripod and waited for the magical time. That’s when the lights of the building and the sky were of the same value. You spend an hour waiting for the shot, and when the time comes you just have a few minutes to get the shot.
Earlier I had shot this image , as you can see the late evening warmth is kissing the building
Much earlier in the day I shot this image as I was “getting to know” the building.
As you see, shooting a building means that you have to get a feeling for it, get to like it and befriend it.
