|Shot during a recent trip to Times Square, New York. It was late -- probably close to midnight. A few things about this.
1. The cop is striking quite a pose, but this is completely candid. Shot from the hip, I had to pretend to be pointing something out to my son while I aimed and fired at a 90 degree angle.
2. Handheld at 1/13 (!). Let's hear it for Olympus' in-body image stabilization.
3. I don't care for the grainy treatment of this. I was trying to emulate high-speed film, but we got home late on Sunday, and I didn't have much time to play with it. No matter -- only film will look like film, and I only attempted this in the spirit of the challenge. Here's a clean edit:
Processing: In RAW, remove noise filter, convert to yellow-filter monochrome. In PSP X2, clarify (5), USM (3/100/0), add noise, add vignette with blend mode burn.
