I have read on a previous post (Graham`s about F6) comments about the pleasure of taking a photograph with any camera. This issue makes my choice of image this week. I was going to the dinning room when I visualized a pleasant light coming from this bedroom. The world stopped. I wanted this pic. I needed this pic. I needed to work fast. I left the dinner service on the floor and run for the camera and tripod. The scene contrast were too high for the camera, I wanted to get all from this scene. I hear my wife from the kitchen "Jose, is the table already set?", -"Just a minute"- I said. Quick, quick, I needed to do it -quickly!-. I run for a hand meter and the cable release. As usual I meter on the light but the door gets almost black. what could I do?, I overexpose a bit but the highlights were burned. My wife again, "Jose, lunch is ready..." I tried to add some light to the corridor but result was not as pleasant... ... ... I were having almost the same fun than shooting with my 4x5" Technika... but with the benefit of having that wonderful hystogram feedback. I enjoyed that time (my wife didn`t, she was hungry... !). D700 @ 200ISO+ 50/1.8, f2.8 - 1/125 (+1EV). Finally I decided to burn the highlights a bit, and result were reasonably to my taste, but only looking at the 100% sized image. Downsized, the image loose something. Contrast has been increased here to make it more web-attractive. Color hasn`t been changed. Feel free to post your PiC of the Week. Nikon gear, one image, comments welcomed (I hope), as usual.
