Downtown Kansas City Fisheye Photos

Photos from Saturday evening January 5, 2013 with just my fisheye lens (Canon EF 15 MM) on my Canon 5D II, between 11th and 12th Streets, Baltimore and Main. I would have gotten more shots in but was confronted with a flat tire upon heading…

Kauffman Center From Inside My Car

It's been a few months since any new photos from the interior of my car and I hadn't tried any with the Kauffman Center yet...

Through the Airplane Window

The sun god smiling upon the worlds, in November 2011 on a flight from New York to Kansas City.

Kauffman Center Front Fisheye

Playing around with the fisheye lens and the steel cabling holding up the "glass curtain" at the Kauffman Center in Kansas City, engineered by Novum Structures.

At Paseo and Linwood in Kansas City

I wanted to try and grab some up close fisheye shots of the unique old traffic signal in the middle of the intersection at Paseo and Linwood, and also stuck around for some shots of a couple other notable buildings along with some abandoned…

Oppenstein Brothers Memorial Park in Downtown Kansas City

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.

Photo Shoot For Window Advertising

Last week I worked on a photo gig involving getting some wide shots, mostly with the fisheye lens, of some of the windows at the K-State Olathe Campus Innovation Center out past K-10 and I-435. These two shots were what the client picked for…

Downtown KC – Library District Fisheyes

Fourteen fisheye lens photos from Sunday evening 1/29/12 in what's come to be known as the Library District, on 10th Street generally between Wyandotte and Main.

Inside Kansas City Above-Street Skywalks Pt. 2 of 2

Second round of these shots from last Saturday afternoon. The first few are from Crown Center above Grand Avenue and some at the end are from the 10th and Wyandotte skywalk between the hotels. …

Kauffman Center Exterior & Interior

For the lulz I took a round of snaps Friday afternoon at the Kauffman Center with only my fisheye lens, hoping to promulgate new things both weird and strange. Hopefully I succeeded if even just a little. …

It’s Always Sunny in Kansas City

Three different edits of the same shot, something random I took Sunday afternoon on Westport Road. Color version. Fisheye lens distortion corrected in Adobe Lightroom. I usually don't like the distorion-less fisheyes but in this…

Two Fisheye Pics of Old San Juan, Puerto Rico

A couple more photos from my Puerto Rico trip back in March - I still haven't finished the editing work on the last few shots.

Kauffman Center Head On

I had the chance to go in the Kauffman Center construction site again this afternoon and nabbed this fisheye view of the point as symmetrical as I could get with my tripod. Inside the glass is the grand lobby, to be known as the Brandmeyer…

Helzberg Hall Seat Installation

On Tuesday, Mar. 1 I had the chance to go back inside the Kauffman Center on a tour again. At present most of the seats have been installed in Helzberg Hall, pictured in both photos below. The seat installation in the adjacent Muriel Kauffman…

Union Station And The Link’s HVAC Reflections

Yet another fisheye lens photo, and my fifth and final shot from my series of photos taken from inside The Link Skywalk between Union Station and Crown Center on the evening of Saturday February 12th. These kind of visually complicated things…

Another Look at the Kauffman Center On-Site

The remainder of my shots from my visit to the Kauffman Center site on January 28th - I was a little upset over my Helzberg Hall ceiling photo below as I was unable to achieve a completely perfect symmetry with the composition. Both…

Out The Window Of A Plane

For two days this week I had an event photography gig I was working in Arizona - this shot was taken looking out the window of a Southwest Airlines flight from Kansas City to Phoenix this past Wednesday. Of course, the distortion from the…

The Grand Lobby in the Kauffman Center – under construction

Two weeks ago I had the chance again to go inside the Kauffman Center construction site for photography. For this post I'm highlighting my three fisheye-lens shots taken from the top level off the edge as close to the center as I could get.…

Baltimore Ave. Sunday morning

Something else from Sunday morning. Here I was kneeling next to my car on Baltimore in downtown KCMO, which spooked one of the City Center Square building's security guards initially - crouching alongside a parked car in the very early …

Foggy Fisheye Fun with Bus Blur

To the nearby hotel valets and office building security guards I know I was evincing the appearance of a crazy person lying on the ground behind a tripod on the street corner at 7:30 am Sunday morning. Sometimes we're not always in control…
