Nancye - 1990 


Well, I couldn't stand to have that 1987 photo at the top of this Blog for another day so here is something a little different.

This photograph of Nancye was taken in early March, 1990 on the campus of William & Mary. 



Well, I couldn't stand to have that 1987 photo at the top of this Blog for another day so here is something a little different.

This photograph of Nancye was taken in early March, 1990 on the campus of William & Mary.

I shot it on Kodak T-Max 100 film. You can tell from the blocked highlights and abnormally large grain structure that I had not yet figured out how to properly develop the film. This was pretty early in my photographic career: I hadn't even purchased my first camera yet, I don't think. This was probably taken with a camera I borrowed from the Colonial Echo, the W & M yearbook. The Echo had a pair of Nikon N8008 (how I hated those) and a FM2n, I think. I really didn't pick up an SLR for the first time until late 1989 (I'll share a photo from that session someday).

Still, I can't imagine a picture capturing Nancye any more perfectly than this. This photo looks like I remember her in my mind's eye.
