This is the type of shot I was aiming for when I got to St. Edward’s University for the photowalk last Saturday – a monochrome long exposure of some of the architecture there. The building here is part of the brand new natural science complex which is currently being completed.
It turns out there’s quite an art to choosing the correct shutter speed for these shots. Too short, and the clouds don’t streak enough to be interesting, too long and the whole sky becomes an even tone. Waiting for a useful cloud is also rather important so that the streaking appears where you want it in the frame.
