Daily Photo Phix: What does she see in him?

Woman in advertisement looking at man go by

Walking through a long corridor in the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas last year, I spotted this advertisement on the wall.  The woman’s pose and gaze intrigued me, so I camped out on the opposite side of the corridor and waited for a passerby.  My goal was to use a slow shutter speed to blur the motion of someone passing by, and line that person up with her gaze.  It wasn’t until later that I noticed the painting on the wall, of a woman watching the woman in the chair, who is now watching the man walk by.  And I was watching them all!

Taken with a Nikon D90, f/4.5, at 1/3 second handheld, ISO 400, 27mm focal length, and cropped.

We’ve written posts on using a slow shutter speed to blur motion, here and here.  If you’d like to learn more, please check them out, and thanks for visiting 2 Guys Photo .  Posted by Ed

    I think these are the concepts that elude most people when taking a photo. I need to try to be more creative like this when thinking of composition. Nicely done Ed.

    Excellent capture Ed, very observant! Many times the opportunities are staring us(me) in the face and we walk right by them!

  5. Ed Spadoni says:

    Thank you all for your comments. I think Howard summed it up when he said we walk right by opportunities all day long. If we can train ourselves to truly “see”, we’ll be better for it – and so will our portfolios! Ed
