The Intersection Today we have a new photo from downtown Tokyo.  By now, you have probably figured out that I just can't get enough of these downtown shots.  Each angle is nice and different in its own way.  Sometimes I like to freeze the action, and sometimes I like to let it flow.  It totally depends on my mood when I am shooting.While I am there, I usually have a pretty good idea of how I want to execute the post-processing.  It changes the way I take the shots.  For example, if I want the action frozen, I'll crank up the ISO so that the people don't drag across the shutter too much.  I have my 5 exposures so that the +2 (the longest) fires first.  So I know if the middle exposure (the anchor, I call it) has a shutter that is open too long.  I can just hear it.  If it feels too long, I double the ISO and it halves the shutter speed of the anchor.  This is always my action/reaction when shooting in aperture priority. - Trey Ratcliff Read more, including some exciting news about us and Flipboard, here at stuckincustoms.com.
