Class of 2012

Canon EF with the Canon FD 200mm F4 lens, on Kodak Portra 160.


1/15th of a second at f4, yikes, got a little bit lucky that not much was moving fast, including me. Bringing only this slowish lens and iso 160 film was like bringing a knife to a gun fight in this drearily-lit high school gymnasium. I was told it (graduation) would be outdoors, and I'm a one camera, one lens kind of guy these days. Good thing I'm not working or I'd have to be better prepared :) Truth is I could probably underexpose Portra by 2 stops and still have decent negs, without even bothering to have the film pushed -- problem solved. This day though I was happy to endure enjoy the ceremony from my seat and attempted few pictures.
