Nocturne, Strasbourg, November 2012.
I still struggle to find a proper style for my color nocturnes. I don’t like the orange and yellowish cast of city’s lights. That’s why I almost always go with the Monochrom for my night strolls - even when I go with the M9, I know that I end up converting most of mys hots in black and white.
On that night, back from work, I really found the foggy orange light incredible. I had to shoot it in colors. I’ve waited for bikes or scooters to shoot, ran in the middle of the zebra cross and tried to frame, focus and shoot fast enough, as I didn’t want the character to be too far.
That was not that easy as I had to deal with slow shutter speeds to avoid pushing isos above 1250 (in b&w 1600 is not a problem, in color it becomes way too grainy).
For once, I had a 35mm and that was a good thing, with a 50mm, because of the thinner depth of field, the scooter would have probably been blurred. With a 35mm, the result is as sharp as you can get with a 1/30 s. shot and a moving object.
