Metro shots are always fun. The bright, colorful lights, combined with the blacks of the shadows, go together so well. Cruffo’s shot is unique because of the lens flare, a refraction of light in the lens of the camera which shows up in the image as multiple blue circles. Sometimes these flares can ruin a picture; other times they add a bit of wonder to an ordinary photo. This one is definitely a benefit, with the added bonus of adding color to the image. Quite the shot!
The rock and photography gods smiled on yostinator with this photo! Between shooting into the sun, the chaotic crowds of the H Street Festival, and trying to get an interesting photo of a rocking rocker, quite a bit could have gone wrong. But she pulled it off, and came away with a Prince of the Universe shot. Rock on!
