The Commuter


I've been thinking a lot about light, breaking rules, letting highlights go, blurring the lines between reality and fantasy with real moments captured in time.  Here, the technically correct exposure would have been quite mundane.  Sure, my subject would be sharp and the highlights not blown out, but it would have been a very straightforward capture of the scene.  

Instead, I used a slower shutter while adjusting the focal length mid-exposure to create a different interpretation of this man, hustling to work on a Monday morning, weaving between the crowds, laptop under one arm and phone pressed to the ear.
