Empty bottle, a friend I used to know from many years before. Somehow you’re still around. Let me make some good use of you then.
Sometimes you just want to play around with the camera and have fun, right? I think sometimes that is when a good accident occurs and the photo effect is more interesting than a clean image of the same moment.
In low light conditions the conventional school of thought is to use a tripod and long exposure time, with perhaps a flash or other controlled lighting depending on what you want. I did not have that equipment with me but wanted to shoot away nonetheless.
I was shooting at ISO 400, and like 200, to me is always vivid especially in low light. The shots were hand-held. I knew movement would be captured and the result would be a fun surprise. In my opinion, this is one way you can capture shots that take a creative license and explore the dynamics of the still image.
I titled this “One Handed Mamba” because the bowler here is wearing a splint on his other arm and he nicknamed himself that. He also easily outscored me that night but this photo, along with a few others, made all the gutter balls worth it.
