Tonight’s photo seemed to be doomed from the start!
The evening started well with the inaugural meeting of the Dunmow Photography Club at Orange Street Photography. A decent turnout saw a number of Dunmow local photographers meeting for the first time and this promises to be a good resource for the town. The club will meet on the first Thursday of every month at Orange Street Photography – feel free to contact me for more details.
On leaving the club I took a few pictures…but subsequently found I’d fallen into one of my regular traps and shot at -2ev – so everything is a tad dark 😉
Got home had dinner and ended up watching the X-Men until 11.00.
Finally got around to getting my brand new 50mm f1.4 lens out of its wrapping and took a few test shots. The lens is brilliant in low light…a bit too brilliant and I over exposed the first lot of shots. So, finally, and with the 50mm under control we got this shot of the lining of my Harrington jacket. I had one of these as a spotty teenage and I still love them now…
