    A Salute to the Masters: Stairs (A Tribute to Alexander Rodchenko)

    This article is a tribute to the great Russian photographer, sculptor, graphic designer, and painter Alexander Rodchenko. He was a pioneer in the search for unusual perspectives, with extreme view from above or from below, and with an innovative use of the diagonals and tilted views in his dynamic compositions. For this article, I was inspired by his most famous photo, a woman climbing a staircase, taken in 1930, which is reminiscent of the famous Odessa stair of the film "Battleship Potemkin" by Sergei Eisenstein.

    Top of the Stairs

    The top of the stairs directly south of Brigham Young University campus in Provo, UT. If you're in Provo, then it's easy to find BYU campus, just ask anyone. Go to the very south end and there are around 80 steps that lead to the street below. From right here at the top of these stairs are tons of amazing things to shoot! 1) the stairs themselves 2) if you're looking down the stairs and then you turn to your left, there is a great view of the Rocky Mountains 3) to your right is a pretty path that just continues downhill 4&5) straight above you is a guaranteed awesome shot of the sky because the sky in Utah is huge and full of fluffy clouds 6) go down a few steps and take a shot of the street in front-it's pretty in late afternoon with tons of shadows across the street. Any season is good to come: snowy winter, autumn with colorful leaves, sunny days all offer you cool photos. Don't walk around here at night though-it's dangerous and there's nothing to shoot!
