Last Week’s Instagram

Once a week—or every so often—I will display one of my photos captured and/or processed with Instagram over the last week (this photo is actually more than a week old, but I haven’t posted any new material the last week). It’s a way for me to show photography that usually is quite different from my regular work. Except for the technical details beneath the pictures are displayed without any comments, hoping they will stand on their own. But I still very much appreciate any comments you may have.

Facts about the photo: The photo was taken with a Panasonic Lumix LX-100 with the lens set at 10.9 mm (the equivalent of a 24 mm full frame lens). Shutter speed: 1/60 of a second. Aperture: f/1.7. The photo was transferred to my cell phone and processed with the Snapseed app with various adjustments and filters.

    What an interesting shot.
    Was the light coming from the bar, overhead lights as well as something on the floor? I’m asking as the waitress on the right has light on the underside of the folds of her shirt/top. The sweeper has light on the lower front of her chest too. Couldn’t help but be curious as to the lighting in the room (or outdoor bar?).

    • Old the light came from the bar. The light on the waitress’ underside comes from the light situated right under the counter in the bar, which is probably reflected from the ground.

  3. Great contrast of light and dark here. I would have been tempted to crop the shoulder on the left but on reflection it adds a further dimension to the scene. As always Otto you make me think!

    Interesting action..that happens in restaurants too when it is getting late and someone starts cleaning up around you! Well spotted.

    Lovely mood and great light in a scene with a fine story. Have a great weekend, Otto!

  6. A perfect capture of a busy scene…could call it ‘gender gap’ 😉

  7. The expressions and body language make me think they are nearing the “End of Shift”. The contrast in lighting with the tones being well suited to each other adds to that feel.

    The result of the process is really cool!

  9. A moment in time captured beautifully.

    Beautiful work, and it’s interesting to read the conversation here that comes afterward.
