Photographing Sheikh Zayed Desert Learning Centre

Sheikh Zayed Desert Learning Centre

I'm very pleased with the opportunity to photograph this beautiful jewel in the desert. Sheikh Zayed Desert Learning Centre is an integral part of the development of the Al Ain Wildlife Park and Resort. The project is designed by Chalabi Architects & Partners. inspired by the vision of the late HH Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, feature educational exhibits that celebrate the wildlife and traditions of the desert. In addition the building will also contain a museum, gallery and science facility to further promote environmental preservation and sustainability with interactive exhibits.

The geometry of the project is astonishing, therefore to make the most of it, I've spent an entire day shooting inside out. Technically i used 2 lenses, Zeiss Milvus 15mm ultra wide angle and Nikkor Tilt-shift 19mm on Nikon D850. Also i was using Nisi Filter CPL to remove the reflections and also a Travel Clamp by RRS & my main tripod is GITZO GT model.

Most of the images a single exposure processed with Adobe Photoshop CC & Nik Software.
