|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|I took this image of the Carillon belltower during the 2007 University of the Philippines' Lantern Parade. I exposed this film by spotmeter and took a meter reading on the white beam of the belltower and overexposed it by 1.5 stops. I also took a meter reading of the highlights and the shadow areas and the readings are within the film contrast range.|
The lady on the foreground is a student of the university and while I was about to take a shot she suddenly passed in front of me and literally took the moment away. But to my surprise she stopped and looked up and I carefully took the shot. I wanted to take another shot of this beautiful tower from another angle but the thing is it is surrounded by trees. The negative was scanned and I did some minor post processing. I really am particular about exposure especially about using the spot meter because it makes you careful, and really challenges you in a way that you have this decision to use its capabilities to bring out details and color rendition.
