The Salt Lake Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints lies in the middle of Temple Square, a huge complex of buildings serving the church.
Photo Tip: Get close and look up. It’s a neat perspective shot that recreates the feeling of standing in front of the building.
This temple is probably the most photogenic building in Salt Lake City. This view is of the side.
Photo Tip: Incorporate some foreground elements like flowers and trees.
The front of the temple also has a reflecting pond.
Photo Tip: Watch your reflections to make sure they’re clean and don’t include distracting elements.
Everything about Temple Square was detailed and ornate, even the fences.
Photo Tip: Capture some of those unique textures that you see.
I went back to Temple Square at a different time of day to see what else looked neat with different lighting conditions.
Photo Tip: Revisit the same locations at different times, maybe something new will jump out at you.
Another evening shot.
The landscaping in Temple Square was really top notch.
Photo Tip: Experiment with depth of field for the surroundings in public spaces. The pedestrians walking in this frame are much less distracting with the lovely background blur.
More flowers around the square, but this time I shot towards the sun to try to catch some flare.
