Another shot taken on Saturday night. Using my D90, Sigma 18-200 and balanced on my monopod.
For this shot, I set my camera to vivid picture mode with +3 saturation to bring the colours out a bit. Exposure was manual.
I think I did this shot all wrong. I think I should have used a tripod, closed the aperture, fired the flash in 'slow' mode at a closer subject and let the background burn out / blur a bit more. I could have even tried motion tracking a bit (might have creeped people out a bit?). What do you think? Anything else I should try?
Basically, I personally like the colors and the cluttered background, the London busses/taxis etc but the end result looks cluttered and unfocused with no real aim. I'm going to go back to the same spot, or there abouts, this weekend hopefully with a tripod. What do you think I should do to make the next shot better? What techniques can I use to isolate an interesting subject better?
