I’ve started shooting a lot more in my own neighborhood, the Mission district. The Mission is dense with culture, art, and personality, and venturing out in the mornings has been a great way to get to know the area better. I’ve been waking up early, going for coffee, and once it’s light enough I head out with my Crown Graphic. The weather has been perfect, really – cool and calm, overcast, and sometimes lightly raining. I couldn’t ask for better conditions. I’ve been shooting between 8am and 10am when I’m able to shoot wide open at iso 1600 before too many people are out. I have the run of the place without any trouble.
I’ve already shot 50+ sheets at this point and I’m wondering if I should use this as an opportunity to do more printing, or scan my negatives for presentation online.
HP5+ at ISO 1600, exposed at 1/100 sec f/4,7. Souped in Adonal 1+50 for 20 minutes. Negative scan.
