A little over a month ago my husband and I spent a few hours in Chicago’s O’Hare Airport in the evening. Being bored I did some exploring with my camera. Although I was a little uneasy about shooting pictures in an airport, nobody gave me any trouble about it. Here are a few of the things I found while exploring.
5. This was an almost empty hallway. I sat on a bench and propped my camera on it to take a long exposure (and to lower the ISO). A couple of people came through the photo but you can’t tell because of the long exposure. The only thing that shows up is a darkened diagonal line near the center of the picture. It’s crooked because of the way I propped the camera. I have a version that I cropped and straightened, but then I decided I liked this one better.
7. You can get a decent photo in low light even if you don’t have a tripod. For this shot I just held the camera against the window glass to keep it still during the 2-1/2 second exposure. There are a couple of workers in the shot that are blurred because they were moving.
