Tonight, I attended the 25th anniversary of Photosensitive, a collective of Canadian photojournalists.

I am honoured to be a member of Photosensitive, and I have contributed to the last two Photosensitive projects, “Picture Change” and “Aging”.

A few pics from tonight:

One lesson: don’t be dogmatic. No flash here; I merely used 1600 ISO, f/2.8 at 1/100 sec. When you work it out (which I will leave to you), that’s basically two stops brighter than 400-40-4, which makes sense, Normally, if I used a flash ambient would be –2 stops; this time, ambient has to carry the photo, so it’s two stops brighter.

Photosensitive does everything in black and white.

I used only available light and my 24-70 f/2.8 lens. Why? To shake it all up a little, that’s why!

Me in the mirror…:

Black and white rocks for this sort of work. Look at the photos at full size.
