Sigma DP2 Merrill at 1600 ISO and film like appearance (Feat. Namma Bangalore Habba Event Pics)

Set of images taken at flea market during the night of Namma Bangalore Habba event (20th-Aug-17) at Sankey Tank Lakeside.
The images were shot with Sigma DP2 Merrill at 1600 ISO. These foveon sensor based cameras are notorious in high iso situations. The idea was to keep shutter speed close to 1/125 with aperture wide open. However, in many case it has gone down to 1/30. While processing the raw X3F files in SPP, additional grain feature was enabled to render film like appearance. The results look similar to a 400 ISO film pushed to 1600.

Smiling Man

Smiling Man (film)

He works at a food canteen in my college, where I visit regularly. 

On one Sunday, while I was loading a film (HP5+) on my F80, he was starring at me with surprise -  like a little kid. I asked if I could take his picture. And he smiled like this. Took this image with Nikon 85mm lens at F4.

Later, I developed the roll and gave him a printed copy of this photograph. The smile was bigger this time.

Location: Prakruthi Restaurant, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore.

Film: Ilford Hp5+ at EI 320 (expired 2009). 
Developer: 4ml (for 24 shot film) HC110 in 600 ml 20º C water. Semi Stand Development for 1 hr. 5 inversions in start then at 5 at 30th min.
Scanned using Canoscan 8600F. Post-processed in Photoshop.

That's where he shines!

Man on Street: Shooting with Flash Speedlight on Street


Shot with Sigma DP2 Merrill and Flash.

Posted from Flickr http://flic.kr/p/J45X1A

I've started using a speedlite flash for street photography even during daytime to light up the faces of subjects. So far its good. I've faced some weird reactions from people when they get flashed on face but its fun! :-)
I'll continue using flash from now onwards. My current setup is Sigma DP2 Merrill with a small Sunpak pf20xd auto flash. It goes well with DP2m. I generally shoot on Aperture priority, mostly at F/8 - F/10 during daytime. Since this flash do not work with Sigma's TTL, I manually set the exposure compensation (ev value) to "-1 ev" and adjust the flash power accordingly.
My next step is to get a trigger cable or wireless popper.

Few more shots using speedlight:

For night shots, I go complete Manual. The following pic was shot in hyperfocal distance at F/8 and shutter at 1/30 (I guess!). Flash was on Auto aperture mode, set for F/5.6. Dp2m's leaf shutter works at any sync speed!

Some more shots are below, but this time using my Nikon D5100 with a handheld flash at remote SU4 mode.
