Halloween seemed like a good subject to try some of my first film photos in a long time. The Petri Color 35, a 35mm film camera with a 44mm f2.8 lens and FujiColor Pro 400H film makes a very nice image with soft skin colors against a vibrant background. This digital image was produced at the time the film was developed. Since this image was delivered as a JPG, it did not need much post processing.
These older cameras like the Petri Color 35 really make the photographer think about what he is about to do as he prepares to make a photograph. It does have a light meter, but no rangefinder. So, the photographer must use his best guess of the distance while making the depth of field large enough and the shutter speed fast enough to keep the subject sharp.
Halloween Spider As we leave Halloween in the rear view mirror, we can still begin to look forward to next year’s costume; maybe, a really big spider.
Father Time was not to be overshadowed by the Blues Brothers last night. All the trick or treaters stopped and/or noticed him.
Four Whole Fried Chickens & a Coke; and some Dry White Toast Please! Yep, Halloween brings out Jake & Elwood in neighborhoods across the country. Elwood even had a slice of white bread in his coat pocket. He kept asking people if they had a toaster.
Halloween Don’t forget to take the camera along as you go trick or treating.
Halloween Late Night Out and about tonight, I ran into a couple of real party animals. One of them got all wrapped up in his own jokes. The other just could not keep a straight face. Hope I don’t see them again until next year; real scary dudes.
The Magician A magician in a blue hat went along with us trick or treating. I particularly like the mustache. This Halloween challenged us with rainy weather most of the night so some folks just partied inside all night.
