Eastwood City, Libis
This was my first time to shoot in Eastwood City. Normally, I go there to eat or get wasted, just one or the other. Being a place where you can find lots of colourful lights, Eastwood is one the best place to shoot long exposures. The building walls and windows are just the perfect backdrop for the fountains that lies in front of the mall. The dancing fountain plus the beautiful landscape design creates an indescribable ambiance that will definitely catch your attention just by passing through the place.
The only problem I encountered while shooting here were the security guards. They keep on asking me for a stupid permit to shoot which I don’t have and I definitely think I don’t need. It doesn’t really make sense because a lot of people in this place have their trusty cameras with them and they were taking pictures everywhere. The only difference is that I have my tripod with me. Does that even make a difference?!
Anyway, this was taken last May 17 around 10pm at ISO 100, F4 using a 4sec exposure. The only thing I added was a slight contrast to the image, my watermark and that’s about it.
