Steve - 1992 


Steve and I roomed together my sophomore year at William & Mary, and were more or less inseparable afterwards for a couple of years.

This shot was taken on the roof/balcony of the group house on Randolph Street in Arlington, VA that we shared with Gordon and Lisa.... That's not because of the Christmas lights (who needs a special occasion for those?), but because of the surrounding shots on the roll.

...This one was shot on plain-old Kodak Gold 400 color negative film, and I am not 100% satisfied with the scan and post-processing. I recall using a bounce flash off the side of the house, with a slow shutter speed to try to pull in a little ambient illumination.... I might try it again, but there are too many negatives and too little time.

That's not because of the Christmas lights (who needs a special occasion for those?), but because of the surrounding shots on the roll. That was shortly after I finished college and well before I started shooting professionally.

Color balance was a real problem, as was finding the right amount of sharpening. I might try it again, but there are too many negatives and too little time. . . .
