Northern Quarter Graffiti – Manchester

There are a lot of fantastic examples of street art or graffiti around Manchester, but nowhere more so than the arty area known as the Northern Quarter. After my recent photo shoot of the Manchester Wheel at Night, Mark wanted to explore more of the area between Piccadilly and Ancoats. Walking down the back streets I saw this interesting piece of art in the above photo. Being down an alley in the city centre at night, I wasn’t going to put up my tripod to do a long exposure, so I simply cranked up the camera’s sensitivity to light (or ISO setting) and using the pop-up flash. Ideally I would have put the SB-800 flash gun on the camera with a nice soft defuser to remove any reflections, but I can’t remember everything.
