Downtown sunset

While not as exciting to some as the sun dipping into a tropical sea, if one see light then one can use light. I saw the late day sun streaks in the park below my window.

My main concern was if I could get down the elevator and to the park before the light was snuffed by the urban enviroment. Exposure was based solely on the highlighted tree trunks, with the warm golden “magic light” of the late day. I was only able to grab this shot before the sunbeam hid on me.



About Darrell Larose

I am a highly motivated self confessed techno-geek. While rooted in traditional analog photography, I have embraced the new technologies in photography. I am just as comfortable under the dark cloth of a large-format view camera, as I am with a digital camera. I can produce award winning photographs within the darkroom, or from a digital-desktop. With 40 years of photography as a both hobby, and over 30 in the professional arena I have always produced. I am self-taught in the digital media, I have been a PhotoShop user since 1995 (version 2.5) I found the transition fairly seamless due to my long experience in labs. I have worked within various Government photo units, including the Forensic Photo Section of the RCMP, as well as various professional labs. I can easily converse with a police forensic photographer as I can with a wedding sports or commercial photographer. I have worked for several of Ottawa’s top photographers. I have worked at several pro labs. As well as many years in photo retail.
