Hospital Architecture

When I was given the chance to shoot on the grounds of a bio-medical campus, my aim was to look for lines and patterns within the buildings. These three photographs are selections from that shoot.

The first photograph that I selected from this shoot was a shot that shows me looking up at a glass building. I selected this photograph because I like the way that the sun glints on the top of each point on the building. For this image, I used a shutter speed of 1/2500, an ISO of 6400 and an aperture of f/22.

The second image that I selected from my shoot was a black and white shot of the corner of an apartment block. I wanted the edge of the building to line up with the centre of the image. I like this image because of the symmetry of the windows on each side of the building. For this photograph, I used a shutter speed of 1/2500, an ISO of 6400 and an aperture of f/20.

The third and final photograph that I selected to analyse in this blog post was of a locked metal gate leading to a flight of metal stairs. I like this black and white image because it shows layers of lines in both the foreground and the background. For this photo, I used a shutter speed of 1/2500, an ISO of 6400, and an aperture of f/20.

I experienced some challenges with this shoot because I was limited to the areas/ buildings I could shoot in order to protect the patient’s privacy. Despite this, I found the shoot to be a lot of fun because of the bold lines and patterns found in the hospital architecture. I also like the way that the photographs turned out after post-production as the black and white images look purposefully grainy to make it seem like they have been taken with an old film camera rather than a digital one.
