Intro to Architecture Series, Class 2 – Union Station

Week 2 of my Intro to Architecture Series class with Chicago Photography Classes had us going to Union Station. Given the chillier weather I’ve opted to take students to indoor locations for this series of classes.
Union Station is a relatively iconic location in Chicago and typically a great space to capture photos. However, it’s currently under some major renovations which limited us a bit. But, as I mention in my classes, limiting yourself tends to lead to greater creativity. Whether through gear, location, subject, theme, or in this case…construction.
I was struggling a bit to get in the mindset of creating a series and beyond the construction limitations, I only brought one camera and one lens. I opted to focus on shooting straight-on and relatively centered as yet another limitation and force myself to focus. Here’s what I came home with 🙂
