12/21/10 205 W - + 12 - 6 Four Days of Photos

Two major fires, a retirement lunch, a graduation ceremony, and a mass-casualty incident. Total photos around 2,000. Total number of keepers about 600. Here's a prior posting on Mr. Blogger's workflow. Still having a "problem" with overshooting. So many more photos equals that much longer time spent processing and posting. Need to get leaner and meaner. Or at least leaner.

The new Canon 40D camera body is working super-well in darker conditions. Two night fires and the lower light in the Convention Center did not result in significant impairment. Sample sets were posted for four of the things, with full versions arriving later.

Yesterday's vehicle accident was slightly faster for processing as the pictures were made during daylight and thus the exposures and colors didn't require quite as much work. There were some deadly shadows, however. The light as captured by my cameras is also very harsh. Wasn't entirely happy with the results. But see for yourself...

I can’t imagine what it would have been like to use film for taking lots of pictures like that. You’d have to be selective about what you photograph, and then wouldn’t have any idea how well or bad a new technique was until much later. And spend lots of money on film.
