night light

For a good chunk of my first 7 years at the Chicago Tribune, I worked the day shift.

That translated to the majority of my assignments being between the hours of 9am and 3pm, aka the worst light of the day.

I have never been a huge fan of shooting with the sun at my back preferring the back lit side when possible.

However, there is one type of light that I like even more than back light- artificial light.

Now that I am on the 3pm to 11pm shift, I go out of my way to find crazy night light on the streets of Chicago.

This evening, after shooting a concert in MIllennium Park, I staked out an illuminated city map and shot everyone who stopped by for directions.

  2. Love it!

  3. I’m inspired, great photo Scott.

  4. […] in Actual Pictures Love this image by Scott Strazzante of the Chicago Tribune. Great light is everywhere … now I want to stalk downtown on a Friday. « […]
