Experimentation is “The Gateway” to Great Photography

The St.Louis “Gateway” Arch in St.Louis, Missouri is easily one of the most photographed locations and objects in the St.Louis region. With it being so massive, it offers a challenge in trying to devise a unique way of capturing an image of it without the use of any aircraft. I spent an afternoon experimenting with angles, reflections, and exposure with this image being the result.

With this perspective it almost appeared like a futuristic racetrack shooting into the sky. If it weren’t for the faint clouds captured above, one might not even recognize this was a photograph pointed skyward. The lines of the seams on the metal plates of the arch add some interesting depth of field, as the blue sky reflects giving the steel a cool blue appearance.
