So I was waiting for decent weather, week after week, yet all I got was overcast skies, no rain and bleak colors. No snow either, of course. Which, in all, doesn't exactly make for great landscape pictures. Oh and not to mention that the sun rises and sets while I'm still at work.
A colleague of mine, who used to be a professional photographer back in the days of film (she used to shoot with a Canon F-1, if that rings any bells) suggested that I simply take a break and wait for better conditions. No way.
So I decided to revisit familiar locations and make use of artificial light. Here's my most recent picture and even if it doesn't look it, it took me 2 days to shoot and another day to edit.
It's a 6-minute exposure and it was pitch dark, I couldn't actually see what was in my scene and what wasn't, I had to shoot dozens of ISO 25600 pictures to get an idea what was in the frame and where to move accordingly.
I had to come up with a couple of ideas how to shoot this, for instance, there were 10 times as many cars in the left lane than there were in the right and I had to somehow balance that out - in camera.
