Images from two Art Galleries

Discussion in 'Scenic, Architecture, and Travel' started by Luckypenguin, Mar 20, 2012.

  1. Recently I visited the two major art galleries in Brisbane, being the Queensland Art Gallery and the Gallery of Modern Art. As the names suggest the Art Gallery is quite traditional whereas GOMA is newer and a bit more alternative. I'm not much an art aficionado but both galleries proved to be a good place for photography which kept me amused. All images below were taken with an E-PL1 and Lumix 20mm f1.7. One thing I did find with these images is that indoors with a light background the vignetting of the 20mm can become very noticeable.

    Nice stuff Nic....I really do need to get out to galleries more often, Melbourne has some of the best in the world and some really top class international exhibitions, seems a waste to not go.

    I love the roominess and sense of quiet in 2, 7 and 18....the space really reminds me of the few times I've actually been. The B+W really works great with artwork in #18 too.

    Love te composition of shot #15, the old sofa with the symmetrically arranged artwork on the wall behind it. Very cool.

  6. Hey, thanks guys. One thing I did find is that because a gallery is set up specifically for viewing, it's like the compositions are already arranged for you; you just need to point and click. Both the galleries are quite spacious as well so the the 20mm (being almost a wide-angle lens) is wide enough to capture that feeling of space. I must go back there with the new 25mm and see how it fares. I suspect the results may look quite different when the angle of view and depth of field is cut down.
