Where: Parking Garage, Beverly Hills CA
Between Meeting: Before Lucie Awards
Sometimes you have to work for the image. In this case, I just drove to the right level to find it. I was on my way to the Lucie Awards and was a bit early. I pulled into the parking structure of the Beverly Hilton Hotel where the event was taking place and for grins, I kept driving up to the different levels to see if there was anything more interesting to photograph. When I got to the 5th level, light was streaming through the metal slats of the parking structure because I was now at a height above the surrounding trees.
I zoomed the lens in to the widest focal length and placed the camera directly on the pavement for a dramatic angle. Since I could not see through the viewfinder, I made a series of exposures angling the camera up and down slightly to ensure one of the exposures would fill the frame with the best composition.
