Day #1511

Day #1511 Title: Brick Lane Bro’s
Location: Brick Lane, London
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 50mm EF f/1.4 USM
Notes: I went to Columbia Road Flower Market, Spitalfields and Brick Lane today with friends from GNPC to do some street photography. In Brick Lane we saw these three guys enjoying some rap music together. I was really pleased to get quite a few impromptu shots of them – at least they looked good through the viewfinder. When I reviewed them on the back of the camera shortly afterwards, I discovered to my horror that I had accidentally switched from Av mode to full manual – which was still set to 1/200th @ f/22 after some recent studio work. Argh!! So the best images of the day were about 4-stops under-exposed! I was very annoyed with myself but decided to salvage something from the encounter by chatting to the dapper gent on the right for my 100 Strangers project. Thankfully, when I got the other pictures back to the computer, I was delighted to be able to pull back enough detail, so this just had to be picture of the day.
