the bigger picture

from a trip to london aprox april 2012 – this was pretty much the first time i used my nikon fm2 & 28mm f/2.8ai

Scan-140418-0001

at the tate modern top floor restaurant

i seem to remember massively over exposing this shot as i left the shutter speed on something absurd like 1/16s after shooting a darker part of the museum

Scan-140418-0006

it did not turn out as badly as i had expected

this seemed to come out quite green – the lights must have been quite green as if i try to balance it back to white it makes the image very dark, so there must simply have been a lot of green light, or the film might have been more sensitive to green light – it was fuji superia 200

mural

DSC_0746

A mural that has recently been painted on Taunton’s “third way” – it cost £1000 to paint but it does seem to brighten up an otherwise rather featureless bit or hoarding

just noticed capture nx2 has a feature to set the grey point which is handy compared with setting colour temperature which seems a bit hit and miss sometimes – it also allows output size to be set via size & dpi rather than pixels – i just selected 1200dpi and 36mm on long edge and it calculated the pixels for me
