One Wintry Day
I often scout locations weeks or months beforehand, studying both natural and artificial light sources in each location and then decide how the weather will affect the specific location I want to shoot at.
I had been waiting for a wintry day for this specific location as I wanted to be able to see the rays of light in the image which becomes more defined when it snows and I was lucky enough that we got a heathy amount of snowfall on the evening of March 21.
Taken in New York City using a Sony a7rii using a 55mm 1.8 Zeiss lens.
After finding the right composition, the most challenging part of shooting in this weather is keeping the lens clear of snow.
The ever changing colors of the neon billboard was a game of chance. My favorite was the red, so I was lucky it was that color when my subject entered the frame.
A focal point is pre-selected so when the right subject enters the frame it is easy to just point and shoot without delay.
