This shot had a number of elements, which give me nightmares:

  • Low Light
  • People Moving
  • On Camera Flash

I’m not much good at any of the above and when I first saw this picture on the computer I didn’t much like it. However, on further consideration It’s grown on me. Some of its failings (e.g. the motion blur) work in its favour.

It seems to me that there’s something surreal about it. On the left we have some moving figures – blurred. In the center we have hostess – full of energy and tolerably in focus. On the right we have the elderly lady and the man in the red sweater beside her – both of them frozen and showing little emotion.

Taken with a Sony RX-100 M3.
