1420 XE Ektar 200 Olympia 645N 07How do I shoot the town I live in? It is not at all like Seattle, where you have lots of people on the street. I had tried to shoot the town before and people would stop, stare and just generally intimate me. I decided on a new approach. I would go up to people with my large Pentax 645N camera and ask if I could shoot them but not their faces. No identity would be revealed. It worked. Everyone I asked, except for one person, said I could create an image of them, as long as it was faceless. I had the 45mm 2.8 Lens on the camera (28mm equivalent in 35mm) and had the camera loaded with Kodak Ektar 100 pushed 1 stop. I had the film developed at Panda Lab in Seattle. I scanned the film with the Epson V850, using the Ektar profile in Silverfast.
