Please help me and support my continued journey around Britain by ordering prints of this photo!
Enter the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Arts! The Baltic Mill, in conjunction with the Gateshead Millennium Bridge and The Sage, completes a trio of stunning architectural achievements in the Newcastle-Gateshead area.
The building was originally a flour mill built in the 1930s, along with many others, but closed down in 1981. It wasn’t until the mid-90s that work began on converting into a centre for contemporary arts and was eventually opened to the public in 2002, completely renovated. I mean… look at it. Doesn’t it look cool? =)
Nikon D7000, Tokina 11–16mm ƒ/2.8 ultra-wide angle lens, ISO100, 11mm at ƒ/8, a bracket of three exposures at ⅕, 0.8 and 3.0secs. Little work was needed to bring this scene to its full potential: two HDRs from Luminance HDR were produced, one for details and the other for colour, and blended with one of the edited RAWs, which was made using Darktable’s Masking Adjustments. The glow from the internal lighting, sun from the outside and the mirrored ceiling was recreated in post using my own spin of the Orton effect. =)
