Berlin, June 2015
Since picking up the Nikon 24mm Perspective Control lens in Hong Kong (see last month’s column here – add link), I wanted to shoot some more architecture and improve that side of my portfolio. Shots that were previously impossible – buildings that were too big – were now achievable with the shift capabilities of this lens. This made Berlin the perfect destination: within easy reach of London, and with plenty of food, culture and history to interest my girlfriend.
Architecturally, the German capital is a fascinating place. Heavily bombed during World War II, with many of the remaining buildings demolished in the subsequent decades, many architects have been given a rare creative license rebuilding the city. From my research beforehand, I was specifically looking at shooting at the modern development of the Potsdamer Platz, the Reichstag and the Humboldt University locations within the city.
