Were you there?

One of our Exposure fans, Brian Wong, told us an entertaining story.

“I have one shot of a 1971 F1 racer that I processed with Exposure 3 and I printed at 16×20 and hung up. A guest made the comment ‘I didn’t know you were old enough to have been there for that race.’ I wasn’t there (although yes I am that old!) – it was the same car, taken at the same track but in 2007. He was so fooled by the Tri-X film look that he assumed that it was an original film negative!”

Brian also said, “I just love this stuff. I do a lot of work with historical subjects (mostly from the 1930s-1960s), and some of the images just do not look right with ‘correct’ color as delivered by modern digital cameras and ruthlessly truthful film stocks. As a child of the latter half of the 20th century, I never saw these subjects in real life, so my view of them is on faded Kodachrome II.”

Thanks, Brian!

    When I originally posted this article I got Brian’s name wrong. I wrote Mike instead of Brian. That is embarrassing on many levels because Mike Wong is the marketing director for one of our competitors. Sorry about that, Brian!
