One Hour in Kurmaguda Academy for Relief and Education

With a very small window of time to get to meet the staff and students at K.A.R.E and extremely low light, I had to move fast to get any pictures at all here. For anyone interested, i was shooting at iso values between 2500 and 4000, with a first generation Fujifilm x100. This was to get shutter speeds of between 1/40th and 1/60th sec with a wide open aperture of f2. Some were even as slow as 1/15th. I’m continually impressed with Fujifilms mirrorless cameras since I stopped using DSLRs. 

The light was a lot lower than it looks here, but I chose subjects as close to windows as possible to make the most of the daylight outside. This wasn’t such a bad thing, as I really like window light which is beautiful and which suits my style of photography.

Ultimately, whatever I got in terms of photographs was less important than being able to meet some remarkable people who gave me their time and patience, told me about themselves, laughed with me and made me feel welcome. Thank you..Untitled
