Last month, on the way home from Photographica, I stopped off at a Tea Party Rally. I figured it would be a great way to practice some photojournalism, old school, with the F3HP, motor drive, TriX, and a kit full of fast Nikkor glass. Good call.
A local newspaper photographer, shooting digital, came up to me, hearing the MD-4 and shutter, and said “I miss that sound!” To which I responded, “I can’t get enough of it”.
The supporters were polite, well-behaved, and demonstrating for what they feel was right. Agree or disagree, well, I guess, neither, as a photojournalist for a few hours. The F3 was the hit of the Party.
This was a blast to photograph. High contrast B&W seemed to lend itself perfectly to the event. I also shot some color in the F2, with not nearly the same impact visually. Here are a few frames from the couple of rolls I shot. My Flickr stream will have a lot more-
