Casino Lighting on Flickr.
I’m trying to convince myself to shoot more again and share more of my photos here, even if they are just snapshots. Not everything you shoot can be the greatest thing ever, get thousands of views or favorites. I always tell myself to avoid perfection but I have found myself heavily judging every photo I take, culling down so much that I have barely shared anything this year.
So starting now, I’m just going to put my quarter in the slot and see what I get.
About the image:
A group of us went out to Atlantic City for my friends birthday. I always felt like casinos have really interesting lighting, I would love to do a full shoot in one someday. While we were waiting for all of our friends to get there, Elyse was just sitting there and I was loving the way the light from the slot machine was billing the left side of her face. This was also a good shot for re-familiarizing myself with my XZ-1, which, sadly, I haven’t used much this year. I know there is quite a bit of noise, and the image is somewhat blurred, but I really like the way it came out.
