Dinner Joan 1995

Dinner Joan 1995

My dining room table laid out for a dinner with my at-the-time (1995…) girlfriend. Taken in Albany, CA by an Olympus OM-1MD with a Zuiko 50mm ƒ1.8 lens on Kodak Gold 400. Exposure long forgotten, although the DOF indicates ƒ8 or smaller, so probably on the order of 1/8th sec, probably with the camera on a tripod… Negative scanned into computer by an HP G4010, dust removal and gamma correction done in Paint Shop Pro Photo X2

There’s a 3 inch fresnel spot (tungsten) focused on the tomato bowl centerpiece, with sunlight coming in the window, making for an awkward color temperature mix. (and if I’d lighted those kerosene lamps, [which I did for the dinner…] it would be even worse!) All those tomatoes are ripe, BTW — including the green ones!
