Speaking of skilled photographers, I was lucky enough to have local Hamilton photographer Joanna St. Jaques help me with this shot. She taught me about loooong exposure and shooting at night. This was downtown near city hall – and was it ever COLD. I had to stay as still as I could for about 30 seconds for each shot and we did about seven or eight. I chose this one because I like the anti-selfie element of the street lights obscuring my face. Notice the person in the bus shelter? No idea who they were, but it was super important they were part of this photo series. Every photo in this series has other people in it – very important to the intervention selfie aesthetic. I photoshopped this one a bit.
