Milstein Hall Studio Overhead

A special look at a special space. This composite image — the entire 25,000 square feet of Milstein Hall's L. P. Kwee Studios — was taken by photographer Brett Beyer over the course of three days in November 2011. Approximately 250 photos were captured by a camera suspended 12 feet above the floor and triggered remotely with a laptop. White areas in the image represent parts of the building that intersect the ceiling; for example, the white "H" marks are the building's columns and trusses. Creating the single seamless image took 10 days of post-production. Beyer used a Canon 5D Mark II with a Canon 17–40mm L lens. Editing was done using Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. A 26-1/2" x 38" version of the image was published in the Winter 2011 issue of AAP News.
