It isn’t hyperbole when I say this is probably the most beautiful building I’ve seen in Cincinnati. It is phenomenal and I was blown away by its beauty and grandeur, in addition to its unbelievably impressive details. These pictures do it zero justice.
I am beyond thrilled with the outcome of my first “shoot” and I am very much looking forward to taking in the elegance of this extraordinary historical landmark every week for the foreseeable future. More so, I am so eager to photograph even more architectural gems that I’m yet to experience.
What are some of your favorite Cincinnati buildings/landmarks?
The specs: using my Nikon D3100, I photographed Memorial Hall loosely using the “framing” technique I learned from one of my favorite college professors. This technique means that, in order to achieve the best lighting without a flash, I had to experiment with various shutter speeds (or exposure time). Most of these photos were taken anywhere around 1/4″ (one fourth of a second), which can be difficult when you do not have a tripod (it is recommended to use a tripod for photos shot at 1/60″ or slower). However, I do not have a tripod at this time, and simply focused on breathing steadily and staying very still. It helped that I had a wall to lean on here and there, too.
