Photo of the Month: Aug 2021

I like this one because of the vibrancy of the colours and stories within it. I took it in the morning before the Gay Pride event in Peterborough.

There’s a great mix of people in the photo from the strong, maybe arrogant, pose of the girl fourth from left, through the cheeky grin of the guy second right who’s enjoying the crack and the sadness of the guy fourth left who wants to be in the group but isn’t bold enough to push himself forward, to the group of three girls on the left who haven’t quite got the style yet but are happy to be there on the day.

The photo was taken with my Sony a7 III, 1/125th at f5.6 and ISO 100. The zoom was set at 181mm. It’s got one of my now ‘trademark’ irregular crops but otherwise minimal post processing. My first crop was too aggressive and with this one I’ve given the characters a little more headroom than they had when I posted the photo on david.photo.blog
