Photographer's Note

The final image of this old barn near Brownsville, Oregon illustrates the lesson: find your picture and keep going back and trying different exposures; different films or different simulated films in your digital menu until you get the result you want. Sometimes serendipity plays a role when you pick a spot and the lighting is perfect; the sky is interesting but many times it takes persistence to try / try again. I shot this barn multiple times with different cameras and different films and never got exactly what I wanted. On this particular day, I had some stormy spring skies; old mown hay that had turned yellow and low angle lighting. I locked my Contax down on a tripod, used the Kodak high resolution slide film;(almost an HDR quality film). I took the same picture and pov with a Nikon body / optics and same film. I found that for some reason the combination of that film and Carl Zeiss lens was a perfect match. Every detail was saturated and jumped off the slide!! The lesson for me is that anybody using a digital camera with zeiss optics should look in their menu for a film choice similar to 100 EVS. don't just shoot auto.
