Light is Everything!

The Rink

The good ol’ skatin’ rink! There are not many more iconic small town venues. We had the extended family down for a couple days and took part in the public skating. Our rink upgraded their lighting from horrid barf green sodium vapour to glorious LEDs which is awesome x 100000000. However, I still shot black and white in a street photography style because I like it. Before, you used to have to shoot B&W to get rid of the putrid lighting. But now, we have the freedom to do it for fun! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

I shot this all with the FujiFilm XPro2 and the beloved 35mm f/2 lens. I shot JPEGs and locked them into my ultra contrasty black and white TRI-X film simulation. Here’s the settings:

I did cheat and shoot a bit of colour for the baby and the water tower which was bathed in glorious golden light. But that’s our little secret! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Who is that masked Photog?!

Picked up the paper this week and what do I see? My photo of the Expressway Family Centre’s Ballet Class. ๐Ÿ˜€ Boo ya! I’m in print! . . . But you wouldn’t know it as there is no photo credit supplied. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Not a big deal, really, in the grand scheme of things. But it’s always nice to know just from whence the photos come. I think that image theft is fairly nonchalant on the internet. But really, it’s the same as plagiarizing writing – stuff you can get kicked out of university for! But if people “borrow” images without credit, I’d argue it’s the same thing. ย I’m just happy to have made the front page! 8) And my little ballerina likes it too. Nothin’ cuter than baby ballerinas! ๐Ÿ˜‰

EDIT! ย – – –

To make it clear for the record, I supplied the photo to the newspaper and the newspaper did provide photo credit.ย It turns out it was a simple formatting error and the rest of the article was botched too. 8)
