Burlesque Boogie Nights- TMAX P3200

A couple of months ago I was gifted a roll of TMax P3200. I had been wanting to shoot this film for a while and honestly after getting a roll I didn’t know what to do with it. I go to Sycamore Den in San Diego basically every month for Burlesque Boogie nights and when I first moved here I brought my DSLR as one does and ended up with photos like this.

So I knew the lighting of the venue was tricky both in color and black and white. However reflecting back I know the lights don’t move; they are all spotlights. Honestly know knowing what I know and looking at my past digital images and the TMAX results I maybe should have metered for the highlights instead of midtones. Was honestly just winging it.

I shot this roll on the Nikon F100 for the most part I shot at 3200 at 2.8 and probably started at 125 and changed shutter speed at need when I had time if at all.

I definitely learned a lot from this roll and well with this venue too. I’ll have another shot this coming Thursday as Burlesque Boogie Nights celebrates its second anniversary. Right now the plan is to some behind the scenes stuff with disposable but I may bring a couple cameras. We shall see.Just keep following on IG and you’ll see.
