DIA is amazing museum ( and even more amazing event venue) , and wondering through the halls fills me with joy. So to photogrph an engagement session with a couple who shares love for the art made me giddy.
But photo shoots in museums and libraries com with their own set of challenges. Limited light is one of them, and since there have been some bad apples, more and more curated places put restrictions on photography. If you end up photography in a museum, library or other public venue, be mindful of the policies as well as courteous to fellow visitors.
We took our trip to DIA as a chance to enjoy the art, as well as incorporate the couples love for art, and a place they visited when they started dating .
Some of the pieces of art made me want to get a brush and create my own artistic backgrounds for studio photo sessions.
The bold art with the couple showing off their love, made me feel like I am in the presence of layering of art. The emotions on top of art - that is emotion provoking in itself - created the dynamic multi-dimension new art.
DIA also has amazing hallways, staircases and surrounding outside areas that are perfect for photography 9 and the Detroit public library is right across the street)
