About the Photographer and Photograph:
Photographer: Chris Arnet
Gear: Canon 60D, Rokinon 8mm. Handheld @ 1/400th, f/9, ISO 100
I took this image November 24th during an outing to the aquarium. This is the new (almost complete) landmark Trinity bridge in Dallas, Tx. I wasn’t happy with the images I got from the ground, so I climbed up the construction work to get on top. This set of images is priceless to me, because I was able to photograph the beautiful architecture of this bridge at it’s completion before it was open to the public, so I was able to shoot with no restrictions, and no vehicles in the images. I came away with photographs of a landmark nobody again will be able to capture now that the bridge is opened, and it was a great self reminder to think outside of the box. Sometimes a little risk can lead to a lot of reward.
Wow, Chris! Photographers don’t get enough credit sometimes when it comes to great photographs. Lots of people see a picture and assume “good camera.” Your scenario helps others see how much work photographers go though to get that perfect photograph…and what a perfect photograph this is! Congrats Chris, and we hope you enjoy your photography shirt from Wide Open Tees!
