Verizon Kimmel Abstract X
BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest FIRST PLACE Winner
 
Verizon Kimmel Abstract X
Verizon Kimmel Abstract X
f/ 9.5, 1.5 seconds, ISO-200, Sigma, 28-70MM F2.8 lens at 28mm, 07:09 PM, Philadelphia, PA. We were at the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts on Friday night for our Messiah Sing Along (we are on stage singing and the audience members bring scores and sing the choruses with us). In between our on stage rehearsal and the performance I took a dozen shots of the side of Verizon Hall by the barrel vault atrium roof the Kimmel Center. The shots, which were from 1.5 to 2 seconds, were made by angling the camera while looking through the view finder and then carefully placing the camera on the top of a pedestal by a staircase and holding the camera steady while releasing the shutter.
