365.360° Day 30: 2 August 2011


City of Glasgow College (formerly Glasgow Met), North Hanover Street building. Where I learnt about 80% of the very little I know about photography. I’ve been thinking about this shot for a while and my new wide angle lens gave me the perfect excuse to shoot it.

  1. This is a very nice angle. I love the sky/clouds and the reflection on the windows. It looks great. I really like the wide angle effect. I’ve been thinking about getting a wide angle lens but I should probably wait until I have more experience with my dslr. It’s my first good camera and I’ve only had it for about a month. I’m excited to eventually be able to take awesome photos like this!

    • Thanks for a very lovely comment! A wide angle shot is a beautiful thing it can’t be denied, especially on a landscape with some foreground interest or an interesting building like this. Crazy the kind of image it can produce. This building is actually really, really tall (13 flights of stairs to my evening photography course every week was not much fun!) Check it out: http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4110/4987808747_b4df698628.jpg (not my shot) – the wide angle just changes the perspective so massively – great fun!! Definitely worth saving the pennies for and worth getting a nice piece of glass when you do splash out. Good luck with building your DSLR skills (I’d definitely recommend getting on twitter and following photographers and photo bloggers if you’re not already – such a good source of inspiration, technical advice and ideas – I’ve got a list of them which you can follow to save some time: I’m @robjbc on twitter). Good luck with your 30 day challenge too – great idea and a brilliant way to push yourself and keep shooting, some really good pics on it already!
