Mounted Patrol #5
Two more shots of the traffic cop on York Street in the Colombo Fort, this time taken with a DSLR. The first pic is actually a metering shot I took with my 600D of the scene so that I could shoot it on film with the Yashica. I posted a scan from the Kodak Tri-X film last week on my blog if anyone wants to compare film and digital. These digital files look a bit overexposed but that’s because I lowered the contrast when editing. The original was very high in contrast since I had boosted the ISO to 400 to match the film speed when metering, but unlike the film scans, digital RAW files are much more forgiving and one is able to still recover a lot of detail from the shadows and highlights. Canon EOS 600D and EF-S 18-200mm lens at 18mm, 1/1000, f/3.5, and ISO 400.
50mm, 1/400, f/5, and ISO 100.
