On Assignment: Charlottesville, Virginia

"Ghost Rider" by WExX

What? You want Evil? You got it...

My weather on this assignment has sucked. Rain, clouds, overcast, etc. I thought I would jack with the color temp in my camera and do something different.

This one was shot on tripod at 30 sec. I set my color to 16000K to turn the sky red. To bring out the statues detail in the dark and to help bring the copper horseman back to his proper color with the warm temp adjustment, I popped a flash (about 12 times) zoomed at 105mm, 1/4 power with a deep blue gel on it. The sky had a few dark clouds that were moving that made the black streaks in the sky.

This thing looks like the ghost rider breaking out of Hell. I like it. Somehow, I don't think this one will make the pages of the community magazine for C-ville.
