One of the benefits of living in a large town with the benefits of a small city, is a nice dimly light downtown. I don’t mean dimly lit in a dangerous or scary way, there are plenty of street lamps illuminating sidewalks and streets, but I mean dimly lit as in there is no Times Square/ridiculously lit areas. Market Square, arguably the busiest intersection in all of Portsmouth, still has a cozy and intimate feeling at night. I hate the yellow street lamps, it doesn’t make for great photographs, but it definitely makes for a distinctive feel. Here the warmth of the interior of Breaking New Grounds spills out onto the brick patio of Market Square. This shot also marks the first over the next few days that will be taken on a Hasselblad that I’ll be demoing. I received the H4D-31 (a 31-megapixel medium format digital camera)….a beautifully solid piece of machinery that captures a higher dynamic range on a larger sensor than my usual Canon 5d Mark II. I can’t wait to get it out for some real hands-on shooting.
