A SMILE FOR WEDNESDAYS -- Just Having Fun

This is my daughter and her two best friends. We had a great time doing this. I used ISO 800 speed film for these cameras and no flash. When I shot each girl (ooo, that sounds so cruel) I used the fps mode and just fired away until I had three or four images captured…and hoped for the best. I didn’t want anyone getting too bored, so we did this scene and one other one that will need some major resizing and cropping before it can be displayed here. I cropped these three images to square when scanning and then resized them down to 50% from the scan size. My second oldest made the display you see for me here. She had it done in less than five minutes. It probably would’ve taken me half an hour. The girls were good sports indulging me.

Camera - Konica Minolta 70
Film - Kodak Max ISO 800
Shutter Speed - 1/45 or 1/90
Aperture Setting - f-5.6 Aperture Mode
Lens - Minolta 50mm macro lens
Scanning Method - My scan from my cheap little hp officejet 5510v all-in-one copy/scanner/faxer/printer
