On Break


no images were found

For the past few months I’ve been popping onto the construction site of a new hospital in Manchester, NH. With permission, of course. The building is pretty much buttoned up now with finish work in full swing, so my work there is done.

This is a shot from the summer, taken during the rough framing phase of the project. My visits were all in the morning, often coinciding with the construction crew’s breaks. It gave me 15 minutes to shoot without worrying about people walking through the frame. Not that I mind masking, but processing goes much quicker when you don’t need to.

Its pano shot with the Nikon 24mm PC-E lens.  Its one of my favorite uses of the lens, shifting horizontally of vertically gives you an easily stitchable set of images. My coincidence, my friend, Brian Matiash posted a vertical pano today with his Canon version of the same lens. Be sure to check it out. It is stunning.

Off Season Update:
The second part of my Off Season series begins tomorrow and will run for the next two weeks. Be sure to stop by daily.

My personal rules are the same. All images are shot with one lens, the 24mm PC-E and only on overcast days. This round, I “shifted” the lens more than I did in the first set. I’m happy with the results, but I’m also a little nervous.  The first set was very well received so I’m hoping the sequel is more Godfather II than Godfather III. I’ll let you be the judge.

Hope you like the series.

  1. Great image. I love the processing. Godfather II & III? Should we start calling you Fredo? Stay away from the lake! 🙂
