People-Watching

24 May

For those of you who love people watching, idea number two is using a long exposure to capture the world as it goes about its business.

This image – one of my personal favorites – was taken in NYC.  The city and its inhabitants are in constant motion.  When I was setting up this shot, I purposely chose a long exposure to capture blur as people moved through their day.  I wanted that movement to symbolize the idea of a city that never stops.  Or sleeps, from what I’ve heard. 😉

      Thank you! I’m pretty proud of this one. The pano stitch on this one was a long, frustrating process so I’m really glad it was worth the effort in the end. 🙂

    Really terrific shot of the flat iron building building and I love how you added just a hint of color. Great shot : )

      Thank you so much! I agree, the color makes the shot! It’s always the little details that make us love something. =)
