It is getting decidedly colder, and my camera body is most definitely made of metal.
I was hanging out with a group of friends today. Most I know from high school, but these two I’ve known since I was about 8 years old. My original plan was to do a headshot or something during lunch, however we lost track of time and didn’t end up going out until the sun had snuck under the horizon. After getting a quick, cheap, unsatisfying meal we were on our way back to the house, when I spied some tables and benches in a park. I had them plop down at a table, said “Hold my coffee”, and let them just chat for a minute.
Luckily shots with the two of them together are pretty easy, as they’ve pretty much been best buds their entire lives, so they’ve got a very comfortable dynamic together.
Light definitely wasn’t on my side, so even shooting wide open with a prime lens, I had to up the sensitivity much higher than I’m comfortable with (which is funny, because this camera can go so much higher). The only illumination going on was a pretty nasty fluorescent from the side of a building. Coupled with the faint light from the sky and the street light in the background, I don’t think there would have been any colour balance I could settle on that would have been pleasing, so I just started investigating my black and white options.
This one was using my 85mm lens at 1/60 of a second with an f1.8 aperture. ISO was rocking at 2500.
