Blue boy. Tarrzout, Morocco 1982

I took this shot with my old Nikon F2, which had a very big and noisy motor drive.

One had to make sure one got the shot the first frame as the second frame invariably showed the subject’s reaction to the noise.

On a techincal note, these shots were scanned from Kodachrome 64 which is a fairly contrasty film. Unfortunately I’ve lost the shadow detail in the process. I’m currently in the market for a digital camera that can handle a wider contrast range and the Fuji S5 Pro has caught my eye. Pity about the price.
