It’s been a while since the last Scenic Sunday but I’m happy to get to share this image of Blair Arcade in St. Paul. It’s home to the delicious Nina’s Cafe and lovely SubText bookstore. I was walking back to my car from a fantastic client shoot and took a few minutes to create this image. A few technical notes.. This is not HDR. The dynamic range of the Canon 5d Mark III is so incredible, if shot right, you can pull all kinds of detail out of the highlights and shadows. Secondly, I shot this image as three separate horizontal/portrait shots and stitched them together in Photoshop. The widest lens I had with was a 35mm. Shooting in landscape orientation didn’t include the top and bottom of the building at the same time and that was my way around it.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy it! Thanks for stopping by.
