(Regarding Pop MTL, Part II)
Well. I’ve learned one very important thing on the first day of this gig: I better get back into the studio soon.
To say that I felt intimidated is not only an understatement, it barely addresses anything. I had to really “buck up” and get it together pretty quickly. First, I went over to kick-off party. Even at 1600 ISO, I was getting nothing into my lens. Like, nothing. It was going to have to be flash city. I kept the ISO and put the 2 dollar Vivitar flash into auto mode. You set the aperature it sparks off just right amount. First rookie move: I forgot to change the ISO on the flash. It was reading 400 and so it blasted way too much. I realized after a few exposures and set it to the right ISO.
Yes; all boring info if you are not a nerd.
Anyway, I had to split early as Neptune got bored of the whole scene quickly. So I took some snaps, went home and souped them right away. I wanted to get a look at what I was really dealing with. I wound up with a lot of duds. I am not a professional. That said, I did wind up with a little bit of Cartier-Bresson luck and got a few.
I have 2 rolls of Stars/Diamond Rangs (not a typo) drying in the closet. I’ll scan them later. I’m already behind.
