Default Color Blind but not tone deaf





I know this one is grainy. I wanted to take this without flash (I was taught to always use natural lighting and the law of reciprocity; I guess old habits die hard). I used ISO1600 and a slow shutter speed to make the shot possible at night in low indoor light. There is graininess and movement but I wanted to capture both the movement and character.

Sometimes it works to go with the very thing you're fighting. In this case, it's grain, which I'll bet you already know can actually enhance a shot depending on the idea behind the picture. You could try increasing the grain to see how it looks--you'll never know until you try.

I find the design of a hand in the background interesting. It isn't noticed at first, then the brain says, "Something's over there just on the periphery..."

This was at the same art center that had the ceramic vase. I believe the hand was the artwork of a third-grader. I thought it was an interesting happenstance, also, probably only because the center of interest is another hand. Otherwise, instead of looking meaningful, it would probably just look cartoonish or "off."
