Soper Family

Holly, asked for one thing for Christmas. And she got it :).

I met them a couple years back during the benefit shoot I did in Ft. Collins. Those daughters sure have grown up since then :).

So, this is the first time EVER where I actually put the camera down. I only brought my camera out for 1 day and the rest we actually hung out without dad and his camera :). 2 lost kids and 2 stitches later, Disneyland/California Adventure/Knotsberry Farm goes down in Canlas family history as a trip to remember :).

KODAK PORTRA 400 - underexposed 3 stops, pushed 1

To be completely honest, I prefer just straight 2 stops underexposed. Not pushed at all. The blacks were a LITTLE muddier in my opinion but quickly fixed with a levels adjustment.

How do you survive a 13 hour car drive with 4 kids 7 and under?

SCOOTERS and lots of potty breaks :). Taken in some parking lot in St. George UT on our drive out to Disneyland last month.

KODAK PORTRA 400 - underexposed 2 stops

Ok, so to all of you who are not photographers, this might get geeky.

This is the new Kodak Portra 400 underexposed 2 stops. So, we were driving back from Disneyland to UT and stopped outside of Vegas at the outlet stores. I decided to test this out as the fine folks from Kodak told me you could underexpose this film 2 stops.

As you can tell, this is the WORST lighting situation known to man (nasty halogens from a parking lot mixed with various tungsten lighting).

The exposure @ 400iso was 1/8th of a sec @ f2. But I shot it hand held @ 1/30th (underexposed 2 stops).

The results are unreal. No other color neg film could handle this kind of exposure. This opens up so much more at weddings in shooting in low light.

Tomorrow, I'll post my results of uderexposing 3 stops and then pushing 1 stop in the development (basically underepxosing 2 stops but introducing push).
