What do you think?
The photo was shot using 3200 black and white TMAX film at 6400 ASA at f2.8 and using manual focus.
Try that with your digital camera!!
LOL

Vicky was a Junion at Penn State University when this was taken.
She was dancing in a student based contemporary dance company.

Thanks for your comment!

anything you can do with film, I can do with photoshop and a good printer. And I can do it faster.

I think this is a beautiful picture, but I have to say that- In my professional opinion- digital photography, photoshop and other such tools can capture images with much more clarity and less 'noise'.

This is a beautiful image! Good job!

Not TRUE Panic!!

Your digital camera would not have been able to even capture this image due to the low light. This was shot at 6400 ASA. Under these circumstance your digital camera would have called for a flash and then would have ruined the picture and got you kicked out of the theater!!

Thanks for your comment.

I really like the grain or the "noise" that was half the point of this picture. Its more artistic and organic to me. Digital is too sharp and photoshop grain effects look fake to me.

Very nice photo!

I'll side with panic though, especially with CS3 and Camera Raw 4 you can work wonders with an under-exposed shot...in addition to a good SLR of course.

Oh, well...we can have a photoshop somewhere/time else.

Oooh, love the picture.

And I must say, I am very excited, because I'm in Photo II at school this year, and we get to use SLR cameras instead of the junky point-and-shoot ones from last year...

So yeah, we're just learning about shutter speed, and manual focus, and f-stops and stuff.... I can't wait to start taking beautiful pictures like this!!
