I started noticing that I’ve been leaving my film camera at home more often. So the past few outings I made a point to take my film camera, and leave my DSLR at home instead. Here are some pictures from Labor Day Weekend, as well as Irina’s Birthday. I learned a few things; like taking pictures of a baby who loves to move with a Hasselblad 503 is hard, and the keeper rate is low. Also learned that despite how I feel if I am taking my Hasselblad with me I should throw my tripod into the trunk. There has been several times in the last couple of months where I wanted to take the picture, but it was just too dark for handheld. One example is while wondering downtown Tacoma, we saw this old beat up garage that’s no longer being used, have its door open and the owner was doing some work. We asked if we could go in to look around and discovered the car hiding in a corner. It was so dark in there that I had to shoot at 1/2 a second shutter speed. I used Jemma’s stroller handle as something to prop the camera on and hoped she wouldn’t kick or wake up and move the stroller around. From now on I’ll leave the tripod in my trunk to have just in case I need it. Please let me know what you think.
