Urban landscapes: Shaw Conference Centre

SHAW CONFERENCE CENTRE, EDMONTON, ALBERTA

Getting inside amazing buildings to make photographs is often a challenge, with overzealous security guards on the prowl. However, that was not the case here. I found a quiet spot in the bustling conference centre with a great view of the startling architecture of this structure, which runs down into the North Saskatchewan River valley in Edmonton’s downtown core. I had space to set up the tripod and make some long exposures with no one bothering me.
A wide-angle lens was vital here, to capture everything from the waterfall on the right to the expanse of plunging glass ceiling. Nikon D90, tripod, 17-55 mm lens, polarizing filter.
