I’ve shot a lot of portraits lately at Drink and Click. Today, in keeping with my urban landscapes roots, here’s one that I took two nights ago. It’s at the newly completed Seaholm re-development, of which the centerpiece is a repurposed power station. This is the first time I’ve been there at night.
As part of the re-development, they kept the metal structure and smoke stacks behind the power plant. This straight out of the camera image is this using the Mono Profile 2 setting on the Olympus PEN-F. In anticipation of a little architecture action, I brought along the Olympus 9-18mm super wide-angle, which worked well. The gritty black and white looked better than I thought.
The 9-18mm is a conveniently small lens, but it’s slow with a f4 to f5.6 aperture. I shot this at a 1/6 of a second shutter speed, hand-held, to keep a reasonable ISO.
