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.
