Shooting in ABQ: Old Town


One of my favorite places to photograph when I’m visiting Albuquerque, is Old Town. Centered around the plaza, Albuquerque’s Old Town encompasses about ten blocks of historic adobe buildings. On the north side of the plaza is the San Felipe de Neri Church, the oldest building in the city, which was built in 1793. Surrounding the church, the city’s settlers had built their homes, shops and government offices, many of which have since been converted into the restaurants, art galleries and shops that comprise Old Town today.

One of my favorite subjects to photograph in Old Town is the 300 year old church of San Filepe de Neri in Old Town Albuquerque was photographed using an Olympus E-P3 and a Olympus 12mm f/2.0— 24mm equivalent on the Micro Four-thirds system. Tip: The above image had it’s perspective corrected in Adobe Photoshop. To see how I did that to this particular photograph bounce eon over to my blog—Saving the World, One Pixel at a Time, to see how I did it from start to finish.
