Using Different Lenses in Photography





Here are three photos taken with three different lenses of the construction of Bank Tower Two on Broad Street as part of the Left Bank development. Click 'View Article' to see the photos, descriptions and tips.


These were taken just before sunset, using a Canon 60D hand held with ISO 400 film speed.

18-55mm zoom lens at 18mm, 1/125th second exposure, F/8

This is the widest end of the lens and does produce a little distortion.

 

28-80mm zoom lens at 80mm, 1/200th second exposure, F/8

I always like to fire off several captures because I find that a tiny camera shake can defocus the image and I can never tell properly till I see it on my laptop.

 

70-300mm zoom lens at 228mm, 1/1000th second exposure, F/5.6.

I definitely needed to fire off a few to make sure that I got this sharp (it's pin sharp on the 18mpx master too). The lens produces a sever magenta flare in the shadows adjacent to super reflective edges, most consumer lens have this effect due to the minute tint in the lens glass and can often be red to even green. I removed most of it in Photoshop Elements by reducing the saturation on only the magenta channel and if did not really effect the rest of the photo. It can still be seen but is much better.

Wow! What a view across Birmingham (and then some) from the top of Bank Tower Two

Daniel Sturley, a Birmingham community photographer and one of the City's incredibly talented and inspired 'People with Passion', was invited by Wates to the topping out ceremony at Bank Tower Two in Birmingham to take some skyline photography.

Just take a look at the view from up there!  What a brilliant gallery of photography!

An illuminated crown to light up the City skyline in Birmingham!





With the cladding inching closer to completion, Stephen Giles looks at the distinctive two-storey crown feature that'll top off this momentous development.


The silver cladding continues its upward rise, and with the interior meticulously being fitted out, attention is quickly turning to the distinctive two-storey crown feature at the very top.

Excitingly, it will incorporate a new addition to the city’s skyline – an illuminated crown.

It came about after Regal Property Group, the developer, saw an opportunity to enhance the project by adding an extra two storeys, taking it from 31 to 33 floors. 

Not only did this see the building whiz past the 100 metre mark (102m), but it allowed the architects to produce a design that gave the project further distinction, given that it will sit proudly on the skyline for years to come. 

Glancy Nicholls have designed this to acknowledge the silverworks metal working heritage of Broad Street from yesteryear. The tower already takes subtle nods from that, referencing it with its silver hues in its design and materiality.

Artist Impressions by Glancy Nicholls Architects

The crown has seen an increase in silver frame bars/spindles, with strips of vertical blue lighting, which will further define the crown and give Bank II an imposing identity.

Once complete, the building will boast recessed LED lighting, and given the site location, on what is one of the tallest plots of land in the city, it'll be instantly recognisable for miles around.
