Downtown Austin From The Window

downtown Austin

A slightly different view of the city. Haven’t posted a #cityview in awhile so I figured why not today. via Instagram

If you’re wondering how I took the shot, I stood in a dark room and used the panorama feature on my iPhone to take the shot through the window glass.

This is just what got posted to Instagram, the full size version has more on the edges but this version gives you a pretty good idea of what I got.

The key to shooting through the glass, is that you have to find a spot that is relatively clean on both sides. You also have to pay attention to the glare in the glass, which is why I went with a dark room. I wish we were a little bit higher in the building so the roof of the building across the street wouldn’t be so prevalent, but this will do just fine.

For now.
