Hamburg, Germany – 21 December 2010.
All of the night shots taken in this Christmas series were obtained without a tripod of any shape or size. Instead, my three-year old entry-level digital camera was propped and steadied against a biped – that biped would be me. The other allowance I made was using a lens with a wide open maximum aperture. While the 1.6-times crop factor on my camera has been an issue at times, I’ve simply done what others have suggested – move my feet, and walk in or out until I saw what I wanted to photograph. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed using the 50mm f/1.4 lens.
I made the three photos above in Hamburg on 21 December 2010. This post was originally published on Fotoeins Fotopress (fotoeins.com).
