Street Capture One Night at the Market
This will look mundane to most people but I really like how it came out. Taken with my Panasonic DMC-LX3 after its baptism at Sebaste, Antique. Heh. I like it because of the process involved. First, it was shot at night without any flash. Trying getting a comparably sharp image with your point and shoot. Second, the color rendition is vibrant considering that the only source of light was a couple of incandescent bulbs hanging over the ladies' heads. Third, I like the near-candidness of the two women. They obviously didn't know I was taking their picture. Fourth, shooting the image required a long exposure. It was taken hand-held while I was inside a stopped van with the motor running. I held the point and shoot cam on the the window, which I thought was clever using it as a monopod. Last but not least, I really like doing street shot. The fact it was at night is extra. Hope you enjoy my mundane monograph and the image the image. Cheers.
