p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Chicago architecture


Hi all,
I work for a construction company in Chicago and occasionally document our projects. This building (athletic fieldhouse for Roosevelt University) was a bit challenging to shoot because of the L tracks. For all of these I am trying not to get hit by a car, standing with my back against a steel column to support the L.
Any suggestions - on anything, not just the logistics?

I go back and forth between preferring the 2nd or 3rd - horizontal vs vertical orientation.

I like #2 better with the movement of the L.

I prefer the 2nd as well. I like the context of the street and the El'. It adds to my appreciation of the building.

On the rail maps at the stations, they call it 'L'.

Thanks for the vote, guys...

"EL" is short for "Elevated"

Yes, I am aware. Many people call it EL, and many people call it L.

I like the 3rd.

I don't care if it's El or L, and don't understand why it's so important in this conversation. :-)

To my eye:
#1 is about the building
#2 is about the environment
#3 is about the strange interplay of blues and shapes between the two skyscrapers

Each is appropriate in different contexts. For your needs -- documentation of completed work in an urban context -- I would be tempted to retake #1, moving about two strides forward (to show more of the building, and to relocate the black lamppost to the middle of the stone wall) and perhaps six feet higher (again, to emphasize the building more), with maybe a few millimeters more focal length. Then I'd try to gently lighten (or otherwise bring attention to) the building in PP.

That is kinda what I was thinking.

Kirby Krieger, thank you - that is exactly the kind of feedback I needed. Sometimes it's hard to see all that objectively when you've been staring at the same shots for too long.
