Baha'i Temple, Wilmette, IL
Gear: Canon 7D, EF8-15mm f/4L FISHEYE USM
Exposure: f/6.3 at 1/8000, ISO 800, Natural Light
While on a photo shoot, I captured a variety of images of the Baha'i Temple in Wilmette, IL. It was a marvelous day with beautiful clouds. The temple is quite photogenic, and one of the challenges of photographing it is finding a perspective that shows off the architecture while simultaneously not losing context. I was pleased when I found this view of the temple against the sky with the reflecting pool in the foreground. One last challenge was to bring it all together. Originally, I was shooting with my 70-200 lens, but I found that to be far too long to make the image I saw in my head. So I switched to my EF8-15mm f/4L fisheye and everything fell into place.
