Historic Downtown Hot Springs, Arkansas

I decided to dabble in mostly architectural photography today.  I’ve learned there are certainly some unique challenges to architecture photography.  You end up with some very defined lines and if you aren’t perfectly straight on or if you’re using a wide angled lens (I was), you get some bending and skewing.  I tried my best to correct this in Lightroom and Photoshop.  Hot Springs has some very cool, old buildings.  During this trip, I only used my 16-35 mm lens for wide shots.  I hope to go back soon with my 70-200 mm for some detail shots as there are some incredibly ornate areas along the roof lines and doorways.

NOTE: I’d REALLY like to gain access to the insides of some of these places.  Please let me know if you have any contacts!
