While in Amsterdam I was challenged to get a picture of a woman behind the window in the Red Light District. I read that this is difficult and even dangerous as there are hawkers that will think nothing of throwing your camera into the canal for such an offense. This did not stop me however.
|Camera||Konica Minolta 7d|
|Lens||Minolta 50mm f/1.4|
|Shutter / Aperture||1/40s / f/2.5|
I stood over the canal and took a couple of shots aiming generally down the strip. Then I turned and pulled this one off. Thank goodness for Minolta's anti-shake stabilization, this image came off sharp enough.
It was a little dark, a little over saturated, and a little grainy at first but I think I was able to post-process it to make it interesting. I'd love to know what you think!
I am just glad the camera didn't end up in the canal!
