i'm sure you get asked this question a lot but what aperture do you shoot at for these portraits? also, what kind of film are you using? are you shooting all handheld? it blows my mind you're able to get such good light and decently sharp pictures at night. keep up the good work, man!
Yes, these are important questions. What I’m doing is unconventional in that I’m using slow speed film at night. Slow speed film is meant for daylight. Slow speed film is sharper and less grainy than high speed film. I use Portra 160. I’m able to accomplish an exposure because my lens opens all the way up to 1.2. It’s a fast prime lens to compensate for the slow film. In addition to this I shoot with my shutter at 1/60. This is fast enough to capture a sharp handheld image. 1/30th would be blurry unless I used a tripod, but street photographers that are really dynamic, don’t use tripods, unless you’re Bruce Davidson when he was documenting 110th street with a large format. I hope I helped you brother. Peace
Powerful and beautiful. Glad to have found your photos.
Much Love and Respect. Thanks given.
