When it’s a cold and foggy night in January, most people are cozy and warm indoors. But for photographers, it’s the perfect opportunity to take photos!
There’s a pedestrian bridge over Central Expressway that I was first introduced to a few years ago for a photography class. It’s a great spot to take photos using a slow shutter speed.
You can figure out which direction the traffic was moving based on the colors of the streaks of light.
The photo above and below are the same area. I moved the position of the camera a little and changed the shutter speed.
I don’t generally change my photos to black and white but when I saw the photo below I knew it would be perfect. I think that’s my best black and white photo!
Camera: Rockalita Sunshine (Canon EOS 5D Mark IV)
Lens: My beloved 100 mm macro lens (Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 L macro IS)
Date: January 2017
Notes: I went to a museum today, got annoyed by the art and decided I needed to push my photography to a different direction (from my usual nature / mushroom / cemetery photos) just to prove it can be done. Or put another way, I felt inspired! 😉
