Scenes From Breakfast
I remember when Todd and I used to walk into various lighting situations and evaluate the light without a meter. We would both give our best guesses for the room - Todd was more often correct, but it was a nice game and kept my mind and eye on the light. I am playing the same game with myself these days - not nearly as much fun without Todd, though.
Things are a bit more complicated these days, though. I can easily change the ISO at any point. I guess, technically, i could have pushed my film, but at that point i was compressing/expanding values in such a way that is very different from changing ISOs on a digital camera. At least, i think so. At any rate, the game was played with a constant value (400 ASA) if i remember correctly.
So today, at the dining table with a NE facing window, i watched the light and made my best guesses.
