Default On the run!

This happens all the time around my way. I just had to sit with the camera and wait

40mm f3.5 lens at f11, iirc. Still a few tweaks to make but basically there.

That Rollei must be a drug and motor cycle magnet! This is a superb shot even if you stage it. I like the capture of the discarded drugs and ? cash? How about wearing gloves. I'd at least do that! What did you light his right side with?

On his right (camera left) there is a softbox and a rim light (zoom reflector).

Great shot - I'll wait for the movie for which this is the poster.

It gives new respect for that old motion picture craft, scenic background painter.

Hi Graham,

Well done, this is very well executed shot. I was wondering if the focus on the police car was too much, as it draws a lot of attention, but it does create the sense of a pursuit and the unloading of 'evidence' becomes clearer. Well done.

Bart
