Colored Lanterns

Extended Interview from Australian TV

Here’s the longer cut of the interview… actually, I think this is uncut!

Daily Photo – Chinese Lanterns

Whenever I walk around taking photos, I usually have two cameras with me. My second camera usually has a 50mm prime, or something along these lines. I capture thousands and thousands of little photos, but I hardly ever post them. I don’t know why… maybe it is sort of the one-photo-per-day thing here on the blog. I guess I could post more, but I don’t want it to get too busy… or… well, I don’t know. I don’t have a great reason. But, anyway, here is one of those little photos that I take with my walkin-around-camera from a small shop in Beijing.

    Soooo beautiful – love all the colors!

  • Casper van Zyl

    Very nice Trey, I normally shoot these kind of shots when going into shops,always find things from other countries fascinating

  • paul

    Nice shot. Can I ask why you used ISO 2500? You could have used a slower shutter speed and pushed the iso down to say 800. I’m sure you had a reason.

  • Shea Goff

    I love these colors, the lines, how you lead the eye. And here I am gushing over one of those “little photos”. As always, exquisite work, Trey.

  • Great colors and depth of field!

  • Eric Haggard

    Great picture, when I saw the title I thought for a second you meant the different colored versions of the Green Lantern Corps…yes I am a dork.

  • Trey Ratcliff

    Thanks! 🙂

  • Trey Ratcliff

    It was just handheld and I wanted a fast shutter speed. That high ISO does not add much noise at all with these big sensors.

  • Chris Sproul

    Love your last comment in the Australian interview Trey, sums up my description and thoughts about photography perfectly
