Technical data: Photo taken with an OM series Olympus SLR film camera
and Zuiko 180mm f2.8 lens; hand held, available light. Approximate
exposure 1/500 second at f8 - Kodak T-Max 400 black & white film,
processed normally. No lens filters were used.
Film was scanned using a Nikon
Coolscan series film scanner. Photo file was routinely optimized using
Photoshop; levels and curves, sharpening, cropping and dust spot
removal using clone tool. I use a Mac for all photo processing.
Comments: Picture was taken on a bright overcast day with its
signature broad, even, beautiful lighting. This is my favorite light
for outdoor portraits. I moved in close with a fairly long lens to blur
the background. The photo has an exotic feel, probably because of the
distinctive cornrowed hair.
I used a classic small OM series
Olympus camera because of its fast handling and extremely accurate spot
metering. I mostly use digital cameras nowadays but sometimes I miss
these classic workhorse film cameras.
