So I’m contradicting myself here, I know (see this, and this, and this). But I had some Portra, and I felt like shaking some things up. Mrs. J was in yet another wedding – she is very popular it seems, but who can blame them! So I tagged along and tried not to get in the way of the professionals – I didn’t want to be an Uncle Bob with the camera. The wedding was at the Fox Theater, which has TONS of history. As you can see, just about anyone who has ever been there signs the walls. It was pretty fun to wander around backstage and find famous signatures. The Fox is 7 floors, and the signatures and murals from shows are in every stair well – so this is just a splattering of what lies on the walls. The RX1r was not back from its spa treatment, so I had the M2 loaded with Portra 400. Some of the lighting conditions were awful, I did my best with the conversions. Here are the results…
Typically when others ask to take a picture with the M2, and they have never touched a rangefinder before, the results don’t fair to well. But in this instance, after a quick lesson and me setting the shutter and aperture, I think it turned out pretty well. Maybe it was because he was a mechanical engineer.
By far and away my favorite from the day – love the “3D ness” and of course the classic Portra colors…and Mrs. J doesn’t take too many bad photos in my humble opinion.
So there ya have it, a wedding in color…on film! Don’t say I never try anything new (or is it old??)
