Figure study
 

 
"When was this photo taken? What kind of day was it?

I shot this photo circa 9 p.m. on a cloudless summer evening in early July. It might be hard to tell from a black and white photo, but the sky and mountains were turning pink and blue respectively, as they often do at dusk in Vancouver. And it was a hot day, which accounts for the hazy quality of the background. Haze photographs well.

What kind of equipment did you use to take the photo?

An old Leica M4 with an even older Summicron 50mm/f2 — the 'rigid' version, for you Leica nerds. Film was Kodak T-MAX P3200, because I knew I would be shooting in fading light and didn’t want to use a tripod, but also because I wanted the photograph to look pre-digital. And nothing says pre-digital like grainy, high-contrast black and white film."
