That’s my goal when I create my images. I want to capture your attention for a split second at most. I want you to look at the image and have your brain say to you “well this is nice, let’s look at it a bit longer and appreciate the quality of it.”
There are so many factors that go into the images that need to be addressed in order to pull it off, especially underground. Is the shutter speed slow enough to capture ambient light? If so, is it fast enough so that the people are not blurred if they move slightly? Is the light direction at the proper angle to properly light the subjects? Composition so that the subjects are defined within the image. These are just a few out of a dozen factors I need to address in order to create the image………..usually within minutes. The end goal is to create an image that still looks natural, even though the natural image could never be captured.
