Milwaukee Art Museum Abstracts

A few weeks ago I spent an afternoon at one of my favorite buildings – the Milwaukee Art Museum designed by Santiago Calatrava. When I teach, people often ask if I revisit locations I’ve previously shot and the answer is a definite yes!
There are many reasons why:

  • The way you see photographically evolves over time and what stands out from one visit to the next may change.
  • The way the light interacts during various times of the year to various times of day, whether the sun is shining or there’s cloud-cover affects how you see the structure.
  • You may choose to use a different lens which affects how the details of building line up and what stands out.
  • And your mood may be different which can greatly affect how you see things.

On this particular visit, I mostly photographed with my telephoto lens (70-300mm), which I haven’t done here before. While details are often my focus, they stand out differently using a longer lens like this than my usual 24-70mm. Here are a few results below (many more here from this and previous visits).
First a few from the exterior:
