My original idea was to be in a cafe overlooking a plaza or railway station or something similar with the people blurred as they moved through the longish exposure. How I would have accomplished that using a shallow depth of field I wasn’t sure. In the end I didn’t have the location nor the setup to complete that shot. But I am pleased with the images I submitted for Libby to select and manage.
This image, taken in the main square in Lecce, was to be my location for the long exposure shot. But the cafe was surrounded by bushes and there wasn’t any space for a tripod (The infamous ‘Roger’). The out of focus bokeh goes someway to impart a hectic feel (he says).
As I said to Libby via the courses message app “This was a totally new experience for me – collaborating or collective, however it is viewed. I think we did a grand job seeing the limitations.”
