Technical data: Photo taken with a tripod mounted Nikon SLR film
camera and Nikkor 85mm f1.8 lens using existing daylight & some
reflective fill light. Approximate exposure 1/250 second at f11 - Kodak
E200 color transparency film. No lens filters were used.
Film was scanned using a Minolta
Dimage series film scanner. Photo file was routinely optimized using
Photoshop; color balance, levels and curves, sharpening, cropping and
dust spot removal using clone tool. I use a Mac for all photo
Comments: On this blistering hot day the biggest problem was
keeping faces free of shiny sweat. Dabbing with a towel and shuttles to
an air conditioned car were tedious but that's what worked.
When filming in very hot or cold
conditions I highly recommend getting completely set up before you
bring your subjects in front of a camera. That would include; tripod
set-up and tested, camera(s) prepped with fresh memory cards or film,
reflectors set up and tested, light readings taken and recorded and, of
course, specific photo areas chosen and tested. Lenses can fog-up when
brought out into the elements from air conditioning or heated spaces.
Do it early enough for them to recover in time.
