Boston Common's 1980 Mamya RB 67 VPS 1/250 F11 360mm The Boston Commons was/is my favorite place to walk around and create. The many varied constanly changing subjects were everywhere. As long as that person or subject was in the sun with distinct shadows I left my camera always set @ 250 F 11 - I have a huge 360 mm I am 50 yards from this woman, Hopefully I will be able to find some old images that are very funny, perhaps start a new thread from here in the Arctic. ha ha Boston Commons ! when "shooting from the hip".. while walking along as soon as i see something to capture. Immediatly I either open the lens or close the lens one stop.. IF NECESSARY. learn how to 'read - light". In this case, with all the 'darker" colors. I opened 1 stop.. just to be sure!
