On The Town

On The Town

f/22, 4″, ISO-160, 55mm

I’ve been trying to find the time to get to this one for days. Whenever I do a portrait session, I try to do at least one thing that is new to me and which I’m not entirely sure will work. Oftentimes it doesn’t work. In this case, I wanted to see if I could take a very long exposure on a reasonably well-let street, and have the model be pretty sharp.

I achieved the effect by setting the aperture as small as it would go to reduce the ambient light striking the sensor as much as possible, and relied on a flash through an umbrella to light the model sufficiently. In this case, I think it worked very well. I got tail lights from a passing vehicle to spice up the shot a little more. All in all, I think it gives great atmosphere within a small town that many seniors believe has no interesting backdrops to give up. Hopefully this will help them look at their town with a new pair of eyes.
