Today I’m posting one of those shots that although I’m not 100% happy with it in terms of light, I really like the composition and the moment. I guess that’s the best part about having a photoblog – it’s a medium where you can post new images and try new things even if you are not totally happy with the results. In a few months, I’ll probably look back at this shot and try and do it better on a clearer day from the same location. Think of it as a sketch.
The two buildings you see in the background (if you’re not based here) are called the Jumeirah Emirates Towers and they’ve been my favourite buildings in Dubai for a very long time. Mainly because they can look very different when viewed from different parts of the city. As you can imagine I used quite a long lens for this shot (70-300mm) in order to be able to compress the scene and make the towers look like they are a lot closer.
On a different note, Nikon Middle East was kind enough to interview me for an article on their website and there were some very interesting questions about what it takes to do this job full-time. The article is linked here.
