Modern Transport


Flying Scooter, Plaça dels Angels, Barcelona

Another photograph from the on-going experiment in using a mix of flash and long-exposures for night-time images of objects in motion. Scooters like these are a surpassingly common form of transport in Barcelona – although the levitation is less common…

This was taken with the Ricoh GR’s pop-up flash using a 1/10th second exposure and fill-flash while panning. The wide-angle (28mm equivalent) of the Ricoh means that you need to be a bit too close for comfort with some of these shots – probably a camera with a longer lens would be easier to shoot with. We have quite a few images in this style now, and will probably upload some shortly.
