Julie (75/100) - Cousins' Reunion - Daphne

Daphne was the first person in our family to be degreed and brought her career to a close as the Head of Modern Languages at a prominent Protestant girls' school in the Eastern Suburbs. She is an unabashed Francophile.

Wouldn't the sepia one have been so good in colour!


Ann said...

Yes, it would. Its also very dark. Why don't you shoot in colour and play with sepia/b&w on the computer. Its probably safer. Or take more than one which in these circumstances wouldn't work.

Julie said...

Yes, dark because by then we had repaired to the downstairs bar and I was trying to keep it all subtle. Somehow I have it in my head that a conversion is not as genuine as one taken in the original monochrome. Have to rise above that squeamishness, I guess.

Ann said...

I hear you but have not been game to use in camera b&w or sepia in case I only get one shot and it doesn't work. Don't know how in camera compares to post processing. Always assumed in camera would give a better quality but really have no idea.

How was the interview?

Julie said...

I asked someone that at one stage: I know, Snapper from Gabriola Island near Vancouver. He said that he could not tell the difference usually. That sounds good enough to me.

The interview was quite okay. Went for 45 mins and they wanted to know what I would do for the next 12 months rather than what I have done over the previous 12 months. I was told just after lunch that they were checking my referees. I shall wait and see if anything comes of it.

Ann said...

Checking references is good. You must at least be short listed.

I like the sepia one actually!

If you start shooting in RAW it would definitely be better to post process, I suspect the same in JPEG as you get a much greater control over the variables.
