rain and light streaks | December 29, 2005

rain and light streaks || canon350d/ef70-200Lf4@70 | 6s | f8 | Av | iso100 | tripod
it's been cloudy and grey for the whole last week in toronto; making the city look very depressing. and it started raining last night, which is strange at this time of the year.

the street was very empty when I took this shot so I had to take 8 photos and combine them to get the light streaks. it's multi exposure only in photoshop. put the photos all in layers and change the layer transfer of each layer to lighten, that's all. the same technique was used on these photos too, only with 2 exposure instead of 8.

this is greyhound station Toronto Coach Terminal at bay and edward.

update: the man in the photo is from one of the eight exposures. I didn't want to blend the movements on the upper right triangle, so that part of the photo is only from one exposure. And yes I was suprised to see how sharp he was in a 6 second exposure! I guess he really stood still for that long.
