Simon and I went to Glasgow for a bit of urban street photography.
(We also bumped in to and assisted a friend who was having a shoot in the park that we were in … and none of us knew that the other party was going to be there, in that city, on that day, at that time. Spooky)
Being us, we don’t really do traditional street stuff, so here’s my take …
I’ve done this before, so I thought I’d try again.
It’s really quite easy to do (even more so in a car the size of mine), but the effects are simply stunning.
These were all shot with the posted 30mph speed limit (probably a bit slower than that), and are 13 second exposures.
I stood the tripod in the back of the car, with a leg wedged in to the seat fold, focused to infinity and used my remote sequence timer to activate the shutter. This meant that at no time while I was driving, did I have to touch the camera to activate it
