Welcome to Colorado Springs Daily Photo!

Hi, I'm Tamera, a professional wedding, portrait and boudoir photographer in Colorado Springs. But this blog isn't about my professional work; no, it's a daily love note to my beautiful city, where I've lived for most of my life. I love it here and I hope you enjoy seeing Colorado Springs through my eyes and lens!

The Fine Arts Center by night

Our beautiful Fine Arts Center, an Art Déco jewel built in 1936, is photogenic both by day and by night. These photos were taken on Wednesday night around 8:45pm. The photo below of the new wing makes it seem as if the FAC is illuminated by colored lights, when in fact it's actually the varied color temperatures of the many different kinds of lights that are creating the effect. To the eye, the lighting looks white, but in photos (especially long exposures like this), the color temperatures show up as various shades of green, yellow or orange.

Nice looking museum. I love that O'Keeffe exhibit. I saw it when it opened at her museum.
