Kauffman Center Interior – Pt. 1

On Monday Sept. 20 I went on a tour of the Kauffman Center’s interior with a group from Hallmark. Since there were a number of useful photos resulting,  I might stagger this across two or three posts total – so here’s Part One.

Kauffman Construction Again


Kauffman Center Construction at Dusk

While over on the lawn of the Convention Center Ballroom on Tuesday night getting telephoto shots of the Crossroads and Crown Center, I put on the wide angle and moved over a bit for yet another shot of the Kauffman Center construction and its cranes. I was on the radio show Up To Date with Steve Kraske on KCUR 89.3 a week ago talking about places to get good shots of the city, and this vantage point came up as one of the good sightseeing locales.

Tuesday evening was a good night to get out and get some dusk pics. I had been meaning to try this angle for myself for a while after noticing some other photos taken around the south entrance to the Ballroom at the convention center. The weather was cool, with nice cloud cover for a change, and it worked out great with the light at dusk.

I used six manually bracketed camera raw files at differing exposures for HDR tone mapping, at f/16, ISO 200, 16 mm focal length, and varied shutter speeds.

Kauffman Center Construction at Dusk

Here’s an angle on the new Kauffman Center that I hadn’t tried yet, looking in a north-westerly direction toward the construction site via telephoto lens from about 25th and Troost, at one of the bridges above 71 Highway as it ingresses to and egresses from downtown.

I hadn’t made any plans for pics, but sometimes you can spontaneously get the urge to make something new. Photo taken about 9:20 pm, Tuesday evening, 07/06/10
