The photographs I personally like the best are the ones with people in it. Something about their engagement with a moment, something about the way the camera sees an emotion in them that may have been too transient to register at that time … makes me go back to look again and again at some of these pictures …
All four were shot with different cameras … The first one was with a film Canon EOS 300 after having a CLA done on it, the second one was shot with a Nikon D40X with a Nikkor 50mm portrait lens (which has now passed on to a new owner ), the third one was shot with a Fuji F30 in near complete darkness, and the last one was done outdoors with a Konica 35mm SLR, with a meter reading taken off a light meter (notice the blown overexposed background …) but it was my first time using the Konica and the light meter and I was more than a little drunk … there hopefully somebody will buy that excuse for what is really my abysmal ignorance about how to spotmeter for contrasts when shooting with a completely manual camera :(
But *brightening up* I've since experimented and it's getting better (I think)
I'm going to reinstate something I used to do earlier … why? because I'm hopelessly self centered and have given up on trying to reform myself of my interest in my interests in myself.
