Just Passin' Through

Posted on Tue 31st Jan, 2006, 9:18pm

ISO: 100, Shutter speed: 1/80, Aperture: f/4,
Camera: Canon EOS 20D, Flash: None, Cropping: Better framing,
Lens: Sigma 18-50mm F2.8 EX DC, Focal length: 50mm,
Captured: 23rd January 2006, 2:50pm,

This shot caught me a bit off-guard. I was standing in the middle of the road (well, one of those pedestrian island things) looking at this shop front because I liked how run-down it was and I decided to try to get a shot of someone passing. I wanted to blur the person so I started playing about with the settings on my camera and suddenly this kid scooted past in front of me.

I quickly pointed the camera and pressed the button and thankfully I managed to get a useable photo out of it.

It's still not as sharp as I'd like and the kid's further over to the right than I'd want but overall I can't be diappointed with it. I think this one's come out quite well in processing.

There's no F-in-Service. The littl' scooter kid looks like one of the little monsters from a 1980s horror flick, The Brood. A real cracking shot. Dubdued saturation works well and a good "Shots" style photo.

subdued I meant....

I agree with milou, the photo has a certain sinister feel to it. Reminds me of The Shining for some reason! Yeah... it's the kid on the scooter thing which does it.

I think this one works just fine, nothing needs changing, the blurr you have on the kid is cracking tbh...couldn't do better if you had planned it :)

what's an 'F SERVICE' ??

Should have been Self Service.

I lOVE this shot, the fact that it's a kid on a scooter, rather than a person walking by, really makes it. The image really looks like urban decay, but the bright colours of the scooter balance it out.
