So I’ve had this idea in my head for a while, but I’ve always been curious to see what it’d look like if i setup the tripod on an escalator and did a long exposure. Finally found an appropriate escalator in Hong Kong with adequate lighting, good background, and not too many people (so I didn’t look crazy taking the escalator like 20 times). Here’s what I got. Wasn’t sure how I wanted to process these, so I tried some different things here:
All in all I think this worked out a little better than I thought it would have. Gonna find a better escalator to try this out on; this one was kinda shaky and the shot didn’t turn out quite how i wanted it. Gonna try to use one of those flat walking escalators that they have at airports and maybe a stationary object for the subject to see if I can get some better in-focus/blurred contrast.
