Pic of the day by Tom Choinski

By on December 10, 2012
Lens:  Watts 
Film:  Rock BW-11 
Flash:  Dreampop 
Using:  Multiple Exposure Kit 

"Each year my Husband and I celebrate our wedding anniversary in the place we were married - Provincetown, Massachusetts. It coincides with an annual charity performance of local performers - mostly female impersonators - who raise money for the local AIDS support group. My husband hates sitting in the front row, but that's where the great pictures are. I used the Watts/Rock combo in part because it was the 'combo of the week' at Hipstamatic Sardinia, in part because stage lighting is actually very challenging to shoot 'from the hip'. Everything is either extremely brighlty lit or pitch black. Rock boosts exposure in dark conditions. I threw in Dreampop flash because it sometimes it creates an interesting flare with Black & White film (not evident in this image). Also, Dreampop actually darkens a photo similar to Jolly Rainbo, but not so severely. I also realized I hadn't been taking that many Multiple exposure shots, so I was experimenting with some technique. The challenge at that moment was not being able to predict the performer's movements."
