The night of re-creation of the most typical skyline shot of Boston. A hands-on hours-long (mostly waiting for the right light) journey that countless camera-wielding folk have endured.

At a certain point you shoot some test shots to see if the time’s right, and it’s this strange “hmm… I’ve seen this before. Oh yeah, this is exactly what I’ve seen over the years everywhere. And here I am. This is how it happens.”

I’m sure there’s ways to inject some personal style into it, but who said education needed to been powdered with flourishes of individualism? When installing a certain bike component, the bolt should be torqued to X lbs using this kind of wrench. When shooting a classic skyline shot, shoot at this time, use roughly this exposure, and voila.

Of course what’s shown here was a bit of play around the assignment.
