Model making
October 29, 2019

One that I wanted to see full page.

But then.. hmm, perhaps not. This would have been so much better with a lower ISO and a tripod. It’s a bit coarse and clumpy. Grainier than I expected with this camera. It was underexposed, and not just a little, that’s why. Sloppy. Not particularly sharp either, because of the hand-held / noise reduction combo. I’m willing to overlook the clipping in the background, but only barely. Do love it though, this picture, for its subject, but certainly not for its execution. 

I remember taking this shot rather hastily. I had been looking at the model making for a while, and suddenly all students were out of the frame. Walked away from their desk or dived under it to pick something up from the ground. And I love pictures of workplaces without the actual work visibly being done.
