All the time!
I mean I do haul the digital camera around with me and bring it out once and a while.
Like last night:
I was cruising around by the Hilton when I noticed the moon light on the water and I noticed those folks walking along the beach so I had to backtrack across the sand where I hastily got that shot off.
A bit blurry for it was at 1/15 handheld but I suppose it's okay.
For guerrilla photography.
Color photography has it's place, some images cry out for color but for what I do I think noir et blanc works best.
One big reason is that I dislike sodium lights.
Everything at night is orange!
Except in photo land of course.
I took that Konica out last night but I haven't developed the film yet.
I found a couple of quirks like the shutter speeds sit right between where I mostly shoot.
Instead of 'normal' speeds like 1/15, 1/30, 1/60 etc, it has 1/5, 1/10 and 1/25.
Slightly faster so we'll see how the film turned out.
It's also a stop slower in aperture so my brain was working overtime trying to adjust and compensate.
This may be a deal breaker, but maybe it's just a daytime camera.
Yesterday some of the kids and I went into school to fool around with this stuff called Inkodye.
It's a light sensitive liquid that you put on stuff and make images on well, the stuff.
Here's the picture which has been inverted:
Not my picture, but one of the students.
Anyways, you put that stuff on a shirt then lay the transparency on top and set it out in the sun for 10-20 minutes.
Then you lift the transparency off and get this:
Pretty awesome if you choose the right image.
I'll be doing one for myself once I select a good picture to do.
I let the kids experiment with it first.
Anyways, more on that Inkodye thing later.
I'm feeling better and now I'm ready to make good use of my vacation time.
