Yesterday I happened to be in Boston at a Pedal Partners event at Fenway Park which was a really great event to meet the young man we are riding for this year. After this event we headed off to lunch and then the MFA. I had not been for a while but could have walked around all day shooting photos of people engrossed in the exhibits. I decided to concentrate most of my images at the Herb Ritts exhibit. The images that Ritts made over the years were in a word striking. The use of shadow and design in his images of people were really something and of course being in B&W are something I love to look at. The only thing that was really bugging me while I was shooting was the really slow start up time of the M-P. God it's slow. When I get the new 64 gig card that is 90mbps speed it will be faster. All the B&W images were made using the M-P in B&W film mode. Here are some images that I made at the MFA.
By the way I still have a couple open seats for the Thacher Island Photography Workshop. Check here for more information.
