Personal / Commissioned: Personal

The main goal of the concept was to capture the building early in the morning while it is “waking up”. Everything and everyone else is still asleep. Some of the students are already in, while others are just arriving. I believe that this scenario gives the opportunity for the building to stand out and really catch the viewer’s eye. Surroundings remain complementary and in contrast to the subject. Fog and vignette are adding more depth and better pronunciation of the background, middleground and foreground. Wet surfaces, puddles and reflections are adding more drama to the scene. Overall I was trying to keep it rather natural and realistic, but with emphasis on art and story behind it.
