August 6th - SP PAD

August 6th - SP PAD

After looking over the Cartier-Bresson photos yesterday I've been thinking more about black and white.

Here I am in the studio at work. This is all natural light from the south-the best light.
I opened the set-shop door to the outside and then opened the adjoining studio door.

At home we have no south-facing windows, only clerestory type windows along the roof
line that face east and west at each end. They let in a very harsh light, very frustrating...

PS: b/w (I don't have access to that new technology in the Isles), unsharp mask...

Canon EOS 300D Digital Rebel
1/50s f/4.5 at 18.0mm iso400 full exif

other sizes: small medium large

I agree with all. I like the expression and feel of it. It'd be a good cover for a catalog for an exhibition!
