All through college, I worked as a photographer. That job paid the rent, bought the books, and in general got me through school. Here is an image I made during a violin recital. The image was made on Kodak Tri-X ISO 400 film and "push processed" to about 800 ISO. I picked up quite a bit of contrast, but I still love the image to this day.
The second image from that I shoot is posted today as the "Image of the Day" above. I added a little noise, via Photoshop, for added effect. These images were made around 1968 - I was 20 years old at the time.
