I said, Leona came over during a very
rare, sunny day. I invite her to
pose on the back stairs, using the
soft (indirect) Northern window light
I did almost everything right. I carefully metered the light, I tested the metering with some exposures with the digital camera, and moved on to expose some film. If only I had transferred the exposure reading to my film camera! Hey, I'm human, and I was distracted! These images are woefully unexposed. I printed a few, just to see -- the prints are awful, but the magic of scanning produced these images, which are acceptable for a web site (but would be totally unacceptable for creating a quality image for hanging on the wall).
And here is one of the test images made with the digital camera.
There is a painting-like feel to this color image, isn't there?
|It was great to reconnect with Leona -- we had been too busy to keep in touch. And as always, it was a joy to work with her. She makes me want to be a better photographer, and after all, what better thing can you say about a model?|
