Brooklyn Bridge

Photograph by Benjamin Becker,
Location: Brooklyn Bridge, New York City, New York
Date: January 3, 2012

Camera: Canon EOS 50D
Focal Length: 12mm
Aperture: f/5
ISO/Film: 320
Shutter Speed: 1/2000 sec

Note: Benjamin Becker took this shot on the pedestrian path of the Brooklyn Bridge in New York City (wiki link). The symmetry in this photo with the wires leads your eye to the top of the bridge and down the path. We have all seen people preaching the word of God on the street and usually annoyed, but this “street preacher” adds some interest and energy of the big city to the shot. Nice capture!

Tip: The shutter speed (exposure, wiki link) setting of 1/2000 of a second, froze the action in this scene. The low focal length of 12mm gives us a wider angle of the scene. When shooting locations, think of different angles you can capture to add interest. This low angle in particular gives us a sense of how large this bridge is. Post processing was done in Photoshop or similar editing program, to get the unique tones and created the eerie mood in this scene.
