Another Tuesday Night street scene in downtown Charleston, SC

Street Walkers

Considering the image:  My Tuesday nights are becoming “street scene Tuesdays” since I am out and about in the evening.  Here is a shot of the old Riviera theater on King Street in downtown Charleston.  It makes a good backdrop for capturing a street scene.  All you have to do is wait for something interesting to happen.

Making the photograph:  I wanted to capture people walking with just a bit of blurred motion, while people standing would be mostly sharp.  To do that I used ISO 800 to keep the shutter speeds relatively high, 1/15th in this case at f/4 on the EF 50mm f/1.8 Mk I.  I used my standard black and white post processing with a green filter applied, some brightness and contrast on the theater sign, and then a nice tritone when the image was done.

Calhoun and King Streets at night in Charleston, SC

Flow

Considering the image:  Calhoun and King Street in downtown Charleston is one of the busiest intersections as well as a great place to grab a java and people watch.  The Francis Marion Hotel and the Starbucks coffee shop make a great backdrop for this long exposure of the street traffic.  They also meant there would surely be people in the image.  Without them, this would be a boring shot.  There might have been more foot traffic but I suppose most of the College of Charleston students are either studying for exams or done and gone for the summer.

Making the photograph:  For this photograph out came the trusty EF 24mm f/2.8 in order to capture most of the hotel facade.  I set the camera to aperture priority,  ISO to 100 and closed down the aperture to f/18 in order to get a 10 second exposure that would render the car lights as trails.  I had to keep the overall exposure down to -2EV to prevent blown highlights on the upper level of the hotel and inside the Starbucks.  Post processing was a black and white conversion using the green filter setting and adjusting slightly, high pass contrast layer, sharpening, cropping, and tri-toning.

A stormy night on Beresford Creek.

Storm over Beresford Creek

Rain falls on the creek like a million tiny bursts of hope.  While clouds race on toward distant dreams.  The ominous glow of lights against the stormy sky gives way.  Stars shine through, regal lords over the terrestrial tempest.  Sail on, intrepid soul.
