Capturing the mundane to create interesting stories

Pattern #01 — Shadows

S-Pattern-R0000405-martosc

Did you realize that pattern on the wall is actually shadow of the glass ceiling?

 

 

Side story:

One of the downsides of using Ricoh GR is that the (attached) OVF does not have exposure information in it.

The biggest downside is that I need to point the camera at the subject in order to get the reading. To make it worse, the LCD is often hard to see on broad day light. So, there I am, trying hard to see the screen and fiddling with the settings. 

Surely there is a better way.

I’m thinking of getting a used small light meter to read the lighting condition, and ‘blindly’ put the reading in camera settings. If I know the starting point, I can change the settings fairly quick, without looking at the LCD.

 

 

Based on online research, I think Sekonic L-208 will do the job just fine… but still not lucky enough to find it available in the second hand market.

Not in a hurry, but definitely will let my eyes and ears open.

Let me know if you hear or see anything :-).
