Mural Portraiture

Normally, I wouldn’t publish a photo like this because it exhibits the use of banding, which is usually never a good thing, but I wanted to use banding to my advantage. Here, I placed my subject to the left of the frame and bumped up my shutter speed to 1/400; the faster my shutter, the more banding there is, the slower the shutter the less banding (and at less than 1/200 for a lot of cameras, no banding due to sync speed). I felt like I got what I wanted, someone to glance a little into the darkness late at night while appearing that they are standing next to a lamp, albeit a bright lamp.
