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 processing.

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.
