School Bus

Posted on | Shot on at 18:00:00

While we were shooting photos of the students protesting for Sawyer Brown school was starting. Since the old courthouse is directly across from the alternative high school we saw a number of the bright yellow busses go whizzing past. I really liked how this one turned out with the sharp images of the students and their signs showing through the windows of the passing bus.

  • i’m amazed that the bus is a blur and yet the figures are crisp. very cool image with all the yellow and black. feels so graphic. (thank you for cropping comment – i agonized over that crop decision).

  • @michele i was really messing around with shutter speeds, trying different variations to find the perfect one… the original intent of the shot was to get some blurry cars whizzing past but most turned out to be too tall relative to the vantage point… this turned out to be one of the best ones
