I recently went to Chicago and so that means that I took pictures of the Apple Stores there. In that city, there are two Apple Stores; one on North Michigan Avenue and another on Lincoln Park. I first went to the one on North Michigan because it was right down the street from my hotel.

Due to things I needed to do during the day, I decided to go there at night, after supper. The store was closed, of course, but some Apple employees were having a talk in the back inside. Though I did not really mind, they left not so long after I had arrived. So, I went to the other side of the street and set up the camera. That particular Apple Store has a window in the front right on top of the doors. That window is the shaped exactly like the Apple logo. The rests of the walls around it are kind of boring and I did not feel bad leaving them out. So, I decided to just focus on the front center by doing a "close-up" of just that. Also, I thought it would be nice to have separate sections in the image. So, I lowered the tripod and placed the road at the bottom third line.

Once everything was set up, I started shooting. First, I did some bracketing to give every part of the image the change to be well exposed. Then, I made the aperture smaller in order to have a darker image and be able to get better light streaks. There were surprisingly not many cars and, so, it was quick shoot. You can see the final result here and on the Applephania page.

Cheers,

Tristan
