Georgetown Steam Plant, Seattle, WA.



For this interior view of the #2 Curtis vertical steam turbine generator in the Georgetown Steam Plant, a National Historic Landmark, I used a Horseman Superwide Pro mounted with a Phase One P25+ back, and a 35mm Sironar lens. The four-part stitch employed allowed for an extremely wide view, but with the characteristic look and feel of a longer focal length lens. The primary illumination was from the expansive window light from the west elevation. I added supplemental lighting to the wheel of the Weiss vacuum air pump (lower left), and the bridge crane (upper right) with a 1000W Arri fresnel. The ambient light fixtures were double exposed in camera at approximately 1/5th of the primary exposure.
