Cockroaches at night
"The humidity in Atlanta is insane."
This picture was taken near DramaTech on the Georgia Tech campus around midnight in late August. the picture show a group of cockroaches on a wall. I think two of them are mating.
Back where i come from it is very rare to see cockroaches unless you really look for them. I took the picture to show my friends and family back home how extremely humid Atlanta was and i think the picture does a fairly decent job of explaining that.
The picture took 4 tries to get right, since it was very dark and i didn't have a tripod i had to use a relatively small f-stop, at first i went all the way to 1.8, but nearby light sources ruined the picture. Eventually i ended up with f/3.5 and ISO400.
No post processing was done to the picture, but if i were to take it again i would have liked to use a smaller aperture to get more of the scene in focus.
I wouldn't mind getting a sharper picture but conventional ways of sharpening the picture wouldn't give the result i want.
