The Austin Building, Nacogdoches TX
We had some big storms roll through last night and this photo was taken just as the storms were moving in. I noticed the clouds were moving really fast, so I set up a quick shot before heading home. I always like the contrast between moving clouds and still buildings. This is the Austin building on the campus of Stephen F. Austin State University.
This is a single five second exposure. I used two neutral grad filters to darken the sky, bringing it closer to the exposure of the foreground. There are lots of tall pines all over campus and I find they make for challenging compositions of the buildings.
See my previous photos of the SFA campus here and here.
QUESTION: Is anyone doing Sue Bryce’s 28 challenges over the next 28 days? If you buy the course you’ll be enjoying an hour or more of Sue everyday, teaching you all of the poses and lighting techniques to run a contemporary portrait studio. It should be fun!

Critiques are always welcome.
