Portraits: Impromptu Night Portrait

(click any image to view website)

After watching the bats swarm out of Congress Avenue Bridge last night, I walked around looking at the downtown lights at night. Austin is a really pretty downtown area, especially if you've got the right angle. I asked an unsuspecting young couple to help me with a picture I wanted to get and asked them to sit motionlessly for a second on a railing. With the colorful wall of the Raddison Hotel in the background, I got this shot with a long exposure, aperture of f/6.3 and my handy SB800 flash with Lightsphere diffuser. I love the light tracer from the bus in the background!
