DescriptionThis is a shot of the west side of 'Prairie House', the nearly mile long office building at Domino's Farms in Ann Arbor, MI. The building is done in the style of Frank Lloyd Wright and is very low and long. At night the building is illuminated with long stretches of green neon. It's very striking, but difficult to photograph. I took this shot about an hour after sunset and decided to play with the lens zoom during the exposure. I like the way the green neon created sort of a translucent plane which cut across the image.One thing to note, the tower structure which appears in the right portion of the image is actually a model of a building which was never built. It stands about 20 feet tall or so.The structure itself is quite unique, as is it's site. Surrounding the building are fenced in areas with long horn cattle and American bison. The building itself boasts a long copper roof and was designed by architect Gunnar Birkerts.
James Howe, Ann Arbor Member Since April 2007 Artist Statement I'm a photographer based in Ann Arbor, Michigan. My main photographic interests are architecture, architectural abstracts, industrial and things with graphical details and classic automobiles. My images typically try to capture something unique about the subject. For buildings and architecture it might be some part of the building that people might typically ignore. For cars it might be a detail that gets overlooked. Sometimes it's just a unique perspective on something that people see on a daily basis.
All of my images were shot using a DSLR and typically receive at least minimal processing in Lightroom and/or Photoshop. Additional work is sometimes done to refine the image, similar to work done in a traditional wet darkroom. It is my belief that photographic art encompasses everything from composing and taking the shot through final processing. Getting it 'right' in the camera generally means planning ahead for digital darkroom processing. My Image Notebook blog describes processing details for many of my images.
