How the winning photo of the "People" contest was made
By tokyoscape in Photo Contests on Dec 24, 2021
I was initially trying to do a time-lapse which turned out to be a bad idea for this location. It has too few people walking in the area. But the two ladies stopped at this one spot and had a chat for a while, so I thought it might be better to do a composite photo of people movement around them. The image is my first successful manually created long exposure composite photo. It took a lot of trial and error in both shooting and post processing. Below I will show the successful part of the work and some tips for anyone interested in trying something similar.
