One of my new interests is "commercial voyeurism."  This is a dry run with Ektar.  There is tons of detail and you can see some of the people very clearly in the offices and what they are doing.  The Ektar was just too slow, though, and many of the people were removed due to the motion.  Despite the long exposure (2 minutes +) it was surprising to see so many people in good sharpness at their desks.  Slaves they are!!!  I am thinking that I should aim for the early onset of the sunset when there is still a bit more outside light and slide film with good reciprocity failure tolerance, like Provia 100F, so that I can expose for the highlights and get a much faster exposure.

More to come... :)

 I see you have come over to the Darkside of color field photography: art plus film. Hooray

¬†Perhaps it is the tongue lashing that is required in a Samuel Beckett play. John Anderson‚Äės character, Nagg, is required to eat only a biscuit, which looks more like a dog biscuit than anything else. No red lollipop here. ¬†John Anderson is one of those character actors who played in literally hundreds of films and television series, even cutting his teeth on Broadway early in his career. ¬†He played the bit¬†part of the gas station attendant in Alfred Hitchcock‚Äės psycho. ¬†But that red tongue? He played Abraham Lincoln three times and Roosevelt, too. ¬† He had a fatal heart attack in 1997, ¬†69 years old.¬†

Very good idea Adam! They look like people in a rat race! Maybe many are in such a good sharpness because they did not move at all for more than 2 sec......

Excellent Christoph. Very effective use of negative space too.

I think it is fun to shoot people in photo galleries. The one below is from the excellent little photo museum we have here in The Hague which recently put on Lauren Greenfield's Generation Wealth, a truly eye-opening exhibition well worth catching.

Thanks, Marc.  Yes, I guess the people who come out very clear are those without ADHD.  Notice that there are only a few of them!

Thanks for sharing this, Philip.  

I came across Lauren in her documentary on one of the streaming services (I think Netflix but not sure), which I HIGHLY recommend.  She grew up in Los Angeles in the same community as the Kardashians (I think he may have gone to high school with them) in the 80's and documented a lot of the "culture of excess" back then. SO intriguing and the documentary is equally fascinating.
