Photo of the week

Every Wednesday evening during the spring, Picnic in the Park occurs in Davis’ Central Park. This weekly event, paired with the farmers market, brings hundreds out to the grass to listen to live music, eat local food or just hang out.

During last week’s trip, I was sitting on the grass when these individuals caught my eye. They were doing partner yoga and some very impressive things with their bodies. I decided I had to take a picture.

Since the sun was setting, the lighting was perfect – just enough for me to use a low ISO of 400. I was able to use a medium aperture of f/6.3 and a shutter speed of 1/200 of a second in order to freeze any motion. I wanted to show how impressive the positions were so I went low to the ground and shot across at the group. I also wanted each figure to balance out the other in the frame so I placed them on either side to make a picture that was as balanced as the people were themselves.
