Return to North Park
As promised, I donned my high-viz vest, took my life in my hands, and stood in the middle of the street in the dark the other night.
North Park – San Diego
Fuji G617 Panoramic Camera with Provia 400 ASA Film – 16 sec @ f/22
Exposure was a nightmare – the sign was bright, so metering from that would leave everything else underexposed, the sky was dark, so would metering there would probably have overexposed everything. I ended up spot metering the base of the sign, and then opening up 2 stops and a bit more for reciprocity failure.
Seemed to work out ok, and the 400 ASA is far more suited to this sort of light than my normal Velvia 50 – although I do miss the vibrant Velvia colors.
Here’s the same view taken with Fuji Velvia 50
30 sec @ f/22 from earlier into Twilight
