Backstage / darkness 2 (06.2009) with Rolleicord

[fashion show - Teatr Słowackiego, scena Miniatura/Kraków]

 

This time I had to cope with almost complete darkness, the backstage area was all black - black walls, black ceiling, black floor, the only light coming from a few weak incadescent bulbs.

 

Also, the ground glass of this ancient camera is very dim, so I had to adapt to such conditions by acting as follows: first -look into the viewfinder, prefocus with the magnifier, then frame the scene roughly. Next, I just look at the model's face with naked eye and wait for the desired moment and expression with the finger ready on the shutter release lever.
