Self-portrait, 1981

Yikes.

 

While this was during the moody teenage years, another reason for the grim face might be trying to use iso 32 film indoors in available light. It probably needed 1/2 second exposure or longer.

 

Although I'm holding a cable release it looks like the self-timer was used for this photo (it's between the motor drive grip and the lens).

 

I loved that super-heavyweight Samson tripod, a loaner from my dad. I think it was intended for large video cameras.

 

Olympus OM-1n, Zuiko 100/2.8, Panatomic-X.
