Mahjong at Night

Mahjong at Night

Photographing on the streets of Beijing was probably my favorite activity while there, and it became even more exciting after the sun had gone down for the day and the only light illuminating the scenes was from the street lamps and lights in homes. In this instance, I liked seeing a group of women playing mahjong inside a brightly light room, while outside it was extremely dark. The challenge here was to expose correctly to that details, both inside and outside, were retained. Zeiss Ikon, Voigtlander 35mm f/1.2 Nokton, Ilford HP5+ film.
