Hanging around Oppenstein Park at 12th and Walnut in downtown Kansas City one evening for fisheye dusk shots. The fisheye lens seemed most suitable since there’s a lot of circularity present in the small urban park.
Shots I took Saturday evening from an obscure hilltop near 20th and Troost looking toward the KCMO skyline using my telephoto lens, which I’ve kind of neglected using lately. 12/17/11.
More shots from a place I’ve stood before. At the end I scouted another skyline angle across the street I’m going to try sometime too. Downtown Kansas City, Missouri, Thursday, 07/14/11
I’m working on a photo project for the KCMO Parks Dept which entails gathering and collecting shots of KC parks and amenities, so Saturday evening I was at Case Park in Quality Hill downtown. At the end I brought out my telephoto lens and aimed it toward the West Bottoms trying to catch that tradeoff between natural light and artificial light. These two pics obviously won’t be submitted as part of my parks project but I wanted to include them in a photoblog posting nonetheless. The narrow aperture of f/18 for both pictures causes the starburst effect from the street lights as the aperture blades inside the lens refract the light onto the sensor.
