I mean really, when are they ever going to get a clue that the seemingly innocent child that they are about to devour is actually a bone-breaking ninja prodigy?
This was a tough shot due to the variable light. by metering on the dark area and allowing the bright area to camera right to be somewhat overblown, you can get a serviceable photo, but really, why not just center it on the background and be done with the back-lighting altogether?
Probably because if they noticed me, I’d have been turned into a newt, but more like I was just walking by as these awesome actors were playing this out and captured what I could – there were hundreds of people around and this was the only vantage point. Capture what you can. Fix it later if you must. A fair photo of a good subject is better than no photo at all.
