PEOPLE 250 – GOING TO WORK 16
January 19, 2017 4 Comments
A small Peugeot appears. Its headlights are off, but those of the following vehicle are bright. I switch the camera to spot metering, meter for the headlights’ glare, and fire. And here are a couple – totally anonymous in the shadows now – on their way into work.
The picture is tightly cropped so that the small car looms almost menacingly in the frame. The camera’s automatic white balance picks up the warmth of the following car’s lights on the road surface, but the Peugeot’s tinted windows cool this colour.
This is not, of course, reality; it was taken almost two hours after sunrise, albeit on a very dull morning. It is how I like to visualise the scene for this image.
