    I tried emailing this photographer but I haven't gotten a response back yet. So I was wondering if you guys would know.

    http://www.overshadowed.com/mt/archives/2005_08.html

    What technique/equipment is he most likely using for the non-traffic shots? It seems very silvery but it still has lots of color..I'm really interested in trying this.

    It looks to me like he uses a digital camera though, so i'm guessing it's not a film technique...what do you guys think? Thanks guys.

    EDIT: ok looks like he uses film..it says so on the page with the picture on it hehe..i missed it..

    I thought you'd get more views and replies if I moved this thread to the general Q&A forum, bobaab. :)

    that's the camera and lense information, but does a certain lense make that much impact on pictures?

    He's using a long exposure. This means that only things that emit intense light or stay still for a long time relatively will show up on the film. Hence the headlights showing up in light streaks but not the relatively dark cars.

    It could be a polarizer but most likely the satuation and color was changed in photoshop. The shapeness comes from the lens.

    Looks like post-processing to me. My guess is some sort of layer blend coupled with some desaturation. i use an overlay blend sometimes that can result in a similar look when you play with the layer opacity and desaturation.

    Hmm it seems to me that he's using film; at the top of the page for each picture it says "Hasselblad 500C/M - Carl Zeiss Distagon T* 50mm f4." So perhaps the effect is just the film he is using.

    It says both a Hassy and a Nikon DX2. Alot of the picture could be shot w/o any post production. Some good metering and a flat film like a Kodachrome or a fuji nph could do the trick. If you ever get to talk to the artist please let us know.
