Alright so I looked up how to attack these shots on my iphone while I was riding with Greg on our way to VIR this weekend. They are tricky! The whole long exposure and keeping fast moving cars in focus pretty much comes down to luck and a steady hand. It also sucked that the clouds were so random it went from light to dark every couple seconds it seemed like.
The trick is:
Low ISO (100-200ish)
High F stop (9-14)
Exposure at 1/60th to about 1/180th
Increasing the exposure bias helps too (I used +2.3 sometimes)
Brittany and I came up with some cool ideas today. Just her in front of a white wall with a bad girl look, I called it the Danny Zuko from grease look. Pics have a strong flash/washed out feel. Only 1 flash and an umbrella.
This time last year i was in Paris with my family for 2 days. I did a lot of walking while I was there and it was hot, but when I look back I really miss it. I dont know any French and I dont like the food, but I would def go back!
I have been following this high fashion/photography/art blog for about a month now and they always have the most interesting pictures. So Brittany and I tried to mimic one of the photos we saw on there. The blog is called "for the love of black" but there is always plenty of color.
I am a digital photographer in Richmond, VA. I love to capture things the way they are and show the world. 95% of my work is straight off the camera. My specialty is automotive, however I will capture anything. Email for more info!
