I photographed a really cool campus in Manhattan called General Assembly.  Entreprenuers rent space in these large open areas for their small business start ups.  Their are classes and common areas for meetings and hanging out.  You can read the story here.

It’s always fun to do something different.  I had to find an interesting angle, showing the expanse.  The photo ran as a spread across two pages. They wrote a bit about some of the people in the photo with arrows pointing to them.  So I didn’t want anyone to be too small.  I ended up shooting with the Canon 24mm TS-E II, but barely utilizing the movements.  I really like that lens lately.  I used it for a portrait recently which I will post once published.  I was on a ladder and the camera was just out of comfortable reach.  I gently clamped my laptop to the ladder’s top and shot in live view on the computer.  I was able to verify focus and see what the camera was seeing, and fire the camera on my computer- very cool.
