What started out in life as a bored time lapse of some traffic at night, or something, soon ended in something a little more exciting
not to mention something with a little more potential meaning.
The final shot:

I guess it's speaking about loss and sadness and loneliness.
Getting there was fun, as we didn't really know of any direction we were heading.
In the end I got into the shot myself!
That's how it happens.
I had a constant light source camera left, in a giant soft box, to light the window frame and curtains.
I had a small 270-EX Canon flash on the floor (angled upwards, just underneath the soft box with some loo roll taped over the end to soften it a touch.
This light was to bring out the models face more within the blur, and also to add some light to her painting.
I used a small aperture (f/29) and low ISO (100), enabling a slow shutter speed of 4s
This enabled me to blur the lights of the traffic in the background, to add to the drama.
It also gave a kind of ghostly effect to the subjects in the camera, no software used, other than for the raw conversion.
Ania remained in the shot for the entirety of the exposure, I remote shot it after setting up, and was in the shot for the first 2 seconds.
Anyway: I hope you enjoy.
