SCDG black and white scrimmage (6 Feb 2014)

Ermagherd! Derby season has barely started and I'm behind on blogging.

Some shots of a scrimmage I snapped last month and the Santa Cruz Derby Girls' new warehouse....

My new rangefinder find shoots video.  I have an EVF for this, but I don't use it.

Instead, I do what I do when I shoot still photos.  I look through the viewfinder.  Everything appears to be in perfect focus (the viewfinder in a rangefinder is just a piece of glass, after all... like looking through a window).  I compare the principal image with the image in the focus patch and I imagine what is in focus and what is not in focus, and I move the camera to frame. I think this lends itself to shooting uncut video snapshots.
