Lately, I've been experimenting a lot more with long exposures. Whether it's capturing scenic landscapes or city shots, the anticipation of hearing the click of the shutter and seeing the final product is exhilarating.
Last night I attended the Sacramento Kings vs Los Angeles Lakers game at the new Golden 1 Center. Despite my Kings loss, I was pleased with the photos I walked away with. Below you will see some of the shots and the gradual setting changes I made to get the final photo. I decided to use my Sony Alpha a6000 because it is more compact than my Canon and delivers great quality. Unfortunately, security does not permit tripods so I settled with resting the Sony on some rails outside the arena.
If you grew up in Sacramento like I did, you already know the importance around the arena and what it means to the city. My goal was to capture the beauty of the new building while also getting some of the old skyline in the background. The lighting added some nice accents to the photo and the bustling crowd shows the city's life.
Before I end this post, I wanted to say thank you to all of our veterans for their time in service and I hope you all have a great weekend ahead.
Until next time...
