Photo Of The Day #139 – Pacino Style


I missed the opportunity the day before so I had to decide quickly when I saw…

… this police officer the next day.

The reason for me taking his picture was the pure fact that he reminded me in his facial expression on the young Al Pacino. So when I was waiting for the traffic light I turned around quickly and shot him with a shutter speed to slow as you can see in the information below.

As you already guessed, this shot was taken from the hip.

Here are some technical data of this shot for you:

Camera: Canon EOS 7D
Lens: Sigma 17-50 2.8
Shutter Speed: 1/30 of a second
Aperture: f4.0
Focal Length: 21mm
ISO Speed: 100
