Stumble Inn on a Saturday Night

Colorful Cocktails

I'm fascinated by the way the city looks at night, the warm colors, the neon signs, the deep contrast between light and shadow. 

Shots like this require patience. Most of the time, some traffic is passing through the frame. Taxis and other vehicles stand in the way and cause more traffic to bunch up behind them. You can wait through several cycles of the traffic signals without taking a single shot.

People move through the frame constantly, often in bunches that detract from the aesthetic that you're trying to capture. Eventually, the obstructions move along. When the right circumstances come together all at once, you'll be glad that you ventured out into the night and waited.

Camera: Nikon D810

Lens:     Nikon AF-S Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8G VR II ED

Light happens. Be ready. Shoot hard.
