Once again I shot this photo with my Toyo View VX-125 4×5 large-format film camera at Mary’s Swap Meet in Midwest City. I shot on Ilford Delta Pro 100 film with my Nikon-W 210mm F5.6 lens. When I am shooting random strangers like this, I usually meter before I talk to them and have my camera set up with the proper shutter speed and aperture beforehand so I don’t have to waste their time while I meter the scene.
