The Hustler

An example of making something from more or less nothing with fairly basic equipment whilst losing enjoying a few frames at The Arch, Manchester. This place is probably the best decorated pool hall in town but not a typical location for handheld ambient light photography. Resting the camera on the cushion gave too low a viewpoint, so I braced it against my toned stomach belly and happily managed to bag this shot on just the second attempt – timing was a bit out on the first go!
