Here’s a photo I took last November in Manhattan. It was quite challenging: I wanted to keep the depth of field very thin to isolate the main subject, so I was used a manual 85mm lens with aperture set at f/1.4 (I had just bought that lens a couple hours before the shot). No image stabilization whatsoever. I wanted to keep ISO low, but now I realize that I should have turned it up some more anyway, to have a shorter shutter speed. Though at the same time, I like the lower shutter speed which renders the motion of the rider.
I didn’t have much choice for framing: the sidewalk was very crowed on my right, the street on my left was busy with traffic.
What do you think of this image?
