Enjoy Cold Days | Find Art Indoors | Corning Museum Of Glass
When it is wintery cold out it is always nice to find enjoyment in indoors activities. I am fortunate to live in a region that not only is blessed with natural beauty but is also home to fun indoor activities. One of my favorite places to visit is The Corning Museum of Glass.
If you go to the Corning Museum of Glass make sure to check out their live demonstrations. Once you get done there be sure to tour the entire museum and soak in all of the amazing glass art from present day far into the past.
When I visit the museum I like to bring my camera. My camera is set up with my 60mm f2.8 macro lens. I keep the aperture as wide open as possible. But even then most of the museum has low light so I need to really boost the ISO a lot of the time.
I like to try and create photographic compositions that render the glass art in a new way. I often try to focus in on one small part of the overall piece using the macro capabilities of the lens. Other times I will try to create a composition that is so narrowly focused that it renders a lot of the original piece out of focus and it is impossible to tell what it actually is. Or I will line up several pieces in the frame in a way that creates an interesting look.
I am just always trying to create something interesting to look at. Often abstract photos created by looking more closely at larger pieces. Check out the gallery in this post and let me know what you like.
