Blur. Orléans, France, 2019. Get a print!

Another photo from my hometown, Orléans, France. This time I played with longer exposures in order to get this weird, blurred mood. Being a coffee addict really helps creating blur for this kind of photo! I wonder if I could start a project and make it a follow-up to Strangers in the Dark?

Do you like this photo? Why not getting an original, signed fine art print in limited edition?

And for this new Photo of the Week, one of my favourites photos, Commuting:

People commuting from work to home... and under the rain.

This photo was taken during Autumn 2014, on a rainy afternoon. The idea with this photo is to reflect the attitude of the people commuting usually from work to home, they are here physically but are in their own mind, thinking about their own business. The blur of the people shows this both “here but not really here” attitude.

Commuting was taken in a quite long exposure, almost 1 second, for a street photo. It helped creating the people’s blur… and also reduce the ISO and raise the quality, 2 birds with 1 stone! Of course a tripod was mandatory here. I wish I had an umbrella too, my poor Canon 6D was totally wet. At least I now know that the weatherproofing works great.

This photo has been processed in black and white with Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, with an accent given on the black in order to reflect the global mood of the scene.
