Moscow: Shooting It Like a Pro
Square of the Revolution Subway Station
The Moscow subway system is one of the most efficient transit systems in the world. It is also one of the most beautiful. Many of the stations in the heart of the city are decorated with mosaics, crystal chandeliers, stained glass and bronze statues, including this commemorative piece (part of a set of more than a dozen) of a dog and its heroic communist handler. Kozyrev says many passengers have rubbed the dog's nose for good luck, giving the snout an unusual coloration. Kozyrev set his camera to 1/25th of a second and hand-held it, giving the train just enough blur to create a sense of locomotion, without losing the detail of the passengers inside.
