I recently hosted a photography event on Lulalearn.com. I decided to take a group out to photograph some of the cool U-Bahn stations that are around Munich. The map below shows some of the stations of interest.
If you are interested in checking out the stations for yourself, I would highly recommend the list of stations here. We bought a day ticket and soon found some cool subjects. Lulalearn.com is a great way to meet people with similar interests.
Every photographer is well aware of the photogenic underground stations in different parts of the world. There are amazing stations in Stockholm, Vienna, Prague and many other place. In Australia we didn’t really have a tube, and I have never really been into architectural photography. However, I recently discovered the Munich U-bahn!
Marienplatz station, Munich. 5D Mark III | 16-35mm 2.8L II | f16 | Tripod
The photo above is of Marienplatz, in the heart of Munich. The design is really cool, and an architectural photographer’s dream. There are many other stations like this. I am considering doing a U-Bahn project, and going around photographing these cool places. In this photo, I used the 16-35mm 2.8L II wide angle lens and a tripod for a long exposure. Architectural photography is all about symmetry, perfect lines and perfect composition.. very hard to do well!
