Technical data: Photo taken with a tripod mounted Olympus SLR film
camera and Zuiko 100mm f2.8 lens; hand held, ambient tungsten light.
Approximate exposure 1/60 second at f5.6 - Kodak E200 transparency film
exposed at EI 400. No lens filters were used.
Film was scanned using Minolta
Dimage series film scanner. Photo file was routinely optimized using
Photoshop; levels and curves, color balance, sharpening, cropping and
dust spot removal using clone tool. I use a Mac for all photo
Comments: This photo was part of a series taken in various
public schools. Many of the photos, including this one, were made
without any supplemental lighting in order to keep a low-key presence.
The low light made a tripod mandatory. If only I hadn't left my camera
bag in the background.
