Out at our Sanford photo shoot, one of the first places we walked down was the back side of the main street to get into the less commonly seen portions of the city. This is one of the first things that really caught my eye. While this may be quite ordinary, I wanted project the symbolism of unity or a relationship through this picture. I really like the rusty old fences being held together by a colorful chain.
I hand held the camera for this picture. Since it was located in between two buildings, I really did not have light on my side. I opened the aperture up to keep a thin depth of field and brought the shutter speed down a bit. In post, I lightened up the picture a bit more and added a hint of saturation to restore the chain’s luster that was lost in the low light.
