. also had another goal for us - to capture imagery we could use for our demonstrations of Adobe Marketing Cloud. Yes, Adobe has spent a boatload of money creating, developing and buying assets to demo our solutions, but often, the imagery and the demo projects don't reflect education in any way. Tim has been spearheading an initiative to build our a true set of demonstration projects for us, but it can't hurt to have a few more photos - or video. So Ryan - also a Chicago native - took us out to his old stomping grounds - Northwestern University - for a couple hours of image gathering.
Turns out, it was the perfect day to do this; not only was the weather fantastic, but as it was only a few days until school began, the grounds were in phenomenal shape! I made over 100 images, all with my Lumix GF7, but distilled it down to about 50 that I felt were worth sharing with the team. The cream of the crop is in this project, but you can also see more by visiting my Flickr album
Northwestern is a gorgeous campus, with a visually intriguing mix of old and new architecture. I wanted to capture the flavour of the university, but also wanted to be sure I had some images that were generic enough that they could be anywhere, or even used as background images for text.
