Patterson 1

I took a few photos of the new Patterson Hall for the newspaper the other day. It should be a pretty nice building once its finished, even though I have absolutely no reason to ever go inside it (it’s a biology building).

I’m experimenting with the automatic copyright watermark in Adobe Lightroom. I like that I can just add it automatically, without going into Photoshop, but at the same time, it’s kinda ugly. I wish there was some way to choose what it would look like. I’ll have to send them a letter. On the topic of Lightroom, I’ve just downloaded the real version (after participating in the beta), and it has gotten so much better. I think it’s going to be a really useful tool for organizing and editing photos, not having to worry about taking each into Photoshop and messing around in there.

Not much to say about the settings for these photos, the first two were with the 18-55 kit lens, f/8, 100 ISO. The last one was with the 75-300 @ 75mm. It was nice to take a few photos outside again, I realized I hadn’t done that in awhile…

Finally, as a comparison, this is the “building” in September. Just a hole in the ground.
