Pic of the Week: Bus Stop by Old Farmhouse by Norman Shulman

editorial image

AROUND Newton Mearns there are quite a few remnants of the past, like this farm house in Old Mearns Road worthy of photographing.

I wanted the image to be bathed in a sombre yellow colour cast to reflect times gone by, therefore my friend and I set off late in the evening to the location near Greenbank Gardens.

To convey the great sweep of the empty road and to create the star-burst effects of the street lamps I used a small aperture on a 28mm wide angle lens.

My friend did well to stand absolutely still for the 25 second exposure.

I used my Canon 7D mounted on a tripod with ISO 500. The aperture was set at f16 and the image taken in RAW format.
