Hung out in Piccadilly Circus for 2-3 hours last Wednesday evening – and after shooting the obligatory shots of the advertising screens, I wanted to get some of the traffic rush, which contrasts with the static nature of most of the people here – the statue of Eros is just covered in people. The light from the ad boards lights up the building on the left and is reflected in it’s windows – so you need to wait for the right advert to play to get the right lighting on the building. Then of course you need to wait for this to coincide with a green light for the traffic, and for a bus to pass :). 1/6th of a second, handheld – thanks to the Nikon VR system !
My mate Chris Davies called me while I’m standing there and says “what’s all that noise? Where are you?”. Well it’s like Piccadilly Circus here fella, mainly because it is 🙂
