In 1930, The Marine Building in Vancouver, Canada was the tallest building in the British Commonwealth. The Interiors are one of the best examples of Art Deco Architecture anywhere. With very limited internal ambient lighting, the challenge was to show the level of detail and original interior colors in a way that would realistically document the roof beams of the main lobby. The photo was taken from the mezzanine using a D3 with a 14-24mm lens set at 14mm. The almost perfect rectilinearity of the image is a testament to the lens design. The aperture was set to f/11 for a healthy depth of field and the ISO was set to 800.
9 images were auto bracketed at 1EV apart. 5 images were used, each with a 2EV separation for the final HDR. No filters were used so as not to compromise the quality of the lens optics.
I, of course, used a tripod and remote cable release. Using the internal levelling of the D3 was critical in achieving the final image. This image was shot very recently on October 24, 2011.
