Photographer's Note

Following from my previous posting of Sax player in the Graffiti park in Reykjavik: This image is of one of the graffiti artists. He is a student studying graphic design at the Iceland Academy of the Arts. One of the other artists on the day was a recent graduate of the same Academy.
The image was taken in a gated passageway that connects the park Hjartagarðurinn (Heart garden) or Hjartatorg (Heart square) to the main shopping street Laugavegur. The other street from which to enter the park is Hverfisgata.
You can see in the image that the main light source is behind the artist. The passageway was relatively dark and there was not enough room for me to stand and fit in the whole image of the artist if I put my camera to my eye, so I held the camera close to ground level and against the opposing wall of the passage. I composed the image by tilting the camera obliquely while looking at the tilted live-view screen on the back of the camera.

ISO was automatic. The auto selected ISO was 1000 while the shutter speed was just 1/60 sec at f7.1
