Spiraling to the Top

This view is looking up at the sculpture which reaches five stories in height. The spiraling staircase resembles a seashell or a ram horn at different angles.

Blue LED Base of Helix

The base has rows of LED’s that change color and spiral around the base. The sculpture and on the floor have numbers and mention engineering, math and psychology that I saw. This is a place with career services and where student contemplate their path and future.

I enjoy subjects like this as I can take some liberty with the color and lighting. I can adjust the shadows and highlights to create something that only the camera can see or that only I see in post processing. HDR helps in this regard but I also push the limits of Lightroom with the Clarity, Highlight and Shadow recovery sliders. I’ll also tweak the color levels and add local adjustments.
