A Shot A Day – 2016 (01/24/2016)

by | Jan 24, 2016 | A Shot A Day 2016 |

“Wait Here…”

I suppose my title underscores the constant streak of rebel coursing through my veins. I couldn’t resist the metaphor, the street lamp and the bokeh here.

A Shot A Day - 2016(B) (024A of 365)-(24-01)

A Shot A Day – 2016(B) (024A of 365)-(24-01)

Sony Alpha A7RII, Sony FE 70-200 f/4.0 G OSS

ISO 3200 – 1/40 @ f/4.0 – 197mm

I was struck by some of the juxtapositions both in the image and outside the image. The ones outside the image were my own personal internal struggles with day to day life, But inside the image I found the “No Stopping Any Time” posted next to and pointing to, the information text kind of funny.

A balance between getting enough light and not blowing out the bokeh points was the key concern here and ultimately I overrode the meter by -2 stops.

The sign being posited underneath the street lamp was a critical lighting element in the final composition.
