Great Photo!!!!

Behind The Lens

Location
This shot was taken on the Jackson Street bridge in downtown Atlanta, Georgia
Time
This was taken about 9 o'clock in the evening on a week night.
Lighting
A couple of things important about lighting are happening here. The long exposure photo allows for the head lights and tail lights of the cars passing by below to be capture on the swooping road below. You want to leave your shutter open long enough to allow enough cars to pass by to provide enough interesting light on the road. The second aspect of lighting that helps make this image special is the lights on the buildings themselves. So as a photographer of shooting many downtowns around the world, it is always beneficial to shoot these types of buildings during the week so the lights of the office buildings will remain on during the shot. Often on weekends, the office lights are off and therefore don't give near as much interest in the buildings themselves.
Equipment
Canon 5d Mark IV with Canon 16-35mm f/2.8 L lens
Inspiration
I wanted to pick up the hustle and bustle of this incredible downtown. The streaming lights let the viewer understand how this city never sleeps. It just gets started as the sun sets and the stars start to shine over the city.
Editing
Main items adjusted in post processing were lowering highlights; raising shadows; and adding some clarity.
In my camera bag
Canon 5D Mark IV; Canon 16-35mm f/2.8 L; Canon 24-70mm f/2.8 L; Canon 70-200 f/2.8 L; Sigma 50mm f/1.4; Canon 2x Extender III; Canon 24-105mm f/4 L; Canon 100mm f/2.8 L
Feedback
This location is an iconic Atlanta shot location. Have a tripod handy with you on this visit. Also, I would recommend you to bring someone with you. On my visit, I was alone and was being approached by a group of six or seven shady individuals. A friend of mine from Atlanta had recently had her camera snatched with her hands on it with a large group of photographers with her. Just be cautious. I was only able to take six shots here because I got nervous due to the recent rash of crime at this location. It's realitiry safe but just be aware and ready to move quickly.
