"Red Fish ...Grey Skies"Open-air market in Bairro Peixoto, Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
A market provides a endless supply of subjects. The people, the colors, the fruit, and well .... the fish. The subdued light of a heavy overcast enhances the colorless background and makes the red in the fish standout from the drab surroundings. The stark composition of this photo is enhanced by a limited color palette.
The photo was taken with a Nikon F100 film camera using a 180 mmmm f 2.8 Nikkor lens. The film used for this image is FujiPress 800. The approximate exposure is f 5.6 @ 1/250th second.
This image was featured in my recent shows as a 13" x 19" / 33cm x 48cm digital print. Prints available for purchase.
