l We Apologise For The Inconvenience: ...part deux

...part deux

The journey into past journeys continues. A few "first shots" in this post.

Taken at market night very shortly after receiving my f/1.4 fast low light lens, shot wide open. Warm tone from incandescent lights seemed much nicer than a colour-corrected version.

One of the earliest digital shots, taken with mom's camera. It's a little fuzzy since it was shot at the lowest resolution and highest compression. Across the street from a whole block of automobile dealerships. Sides cropped to square.

So far that's one digital, one analogue on the OM1n.. that leaves the Exa, so let's do two of those :)

Juxtaposition of the elements is very interesting. If a viewer did not know the context in which this was taken, he or she could draw a wide variety of conclusions, not all of which are positive, so: this was taken in a classroom, during a lecture. Sides also cropped close to a square, looked stronger that way.

Last but not least, another from market night, on a different outing, with the Exa this time. It has very limited shutter speeds and the handheld CdS lightmeter would not read that low, so this was a guesstimated bulb exposure, camera held taut against the neckstrap to keep it steady. This stall is making kettle corn (apparently very popular too, haven't tried it myself but hear it is fantastic).

I'm not a huge fan of Kettle Korn (Sweet popcorn, for the uneducated) however they were serving it when I was in Connecticut during the screening of a film, and my mentor said he thought Kettle Corn might be good with Pepper, so that's on my list of things to try in life.
