Berlin’s traffic in motion

I stopped under a railway overpass to photograph a small piece of the morning commute in Berlin.  It was interesting to see and compare the vehicles on a German roadway with what I’m used to at home in Calgary.

I have a lot of fun photographing things in motion and the half hour I spent on this street just outside of downtown was no exception.  Playing with the shutter speed to isolate subjects as they speed by is a good challenge and can make for strong, dynamic images.  Here then are a few more from that session beside the road.

  2. Yes, playing with shutter speeds to capture traffic is great fun in a new city. Also long exposures for the same reason.

  5. Interesting how geometrical pictures are, vehicles being lined up in perfect horizontal view, and some of them appear to be “riding” railings and road lines. Nice touch:)
