Shaving Time

Shaving Time
Photograph by Sarah Leen

Bryan Reid lives in Manassas, Virginia, but his office is about 70 miles (110 kilometers) away, near Baltimore, Maryland. Which means, on a bad day, his 140-mile (225-kilometer) round-trip commute takes more than four hours. The time crunch has prompted some creative multitasking. “I do everything I can in the car,” says Bryan. “Shaving, conference calls, voice mails, Bible study. I want to make it productive time.”



Camera: F100
Film Type: Fujichrome Velvia 50
Lens: 24mm Nikkor
Speed and F-Stop: Unrecorded
Weather Conditions: Overcast
Time of Day: Early morning
Lighting Techniques: I used a small Nikon bounced flash placed low and to the right of the driver. I also used a slow shutter speed to balance the ambient light with the flash.
