Comments on: Barack Obama Accepts http://2point8.whileseated.org/2008/08/29/barack-obama-accepts/ A wide-open view of the practice of street photography by Michael David Murphy, While Seated. Thu, 15 Dec 2011 18:48:58 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.10 By: Chris Oquist http://2point8.whileseated.org/2008/08/29/barack-obama-accepts/comment-page-1/#comment-92810 Tue, 16 Sep 2008 15:08:19 +0000 http://2point8.whileseated.org/?p=394#comment-92810 Wow, a stunning capture. The composition and slope of the arena really give a sense of scale – that crowd is massive! – and the rich blue of the stage with his shadow cutting through really provides a very strong focal point.

Waxy is right – this would be amazing as a huge poster!

Such a fantastic and iconic image, and I bet it would look even better as a large print.

Every time I see the massive crowds that Obama attracts, it gives me hope for this November.

X-rays…I was told a while back that the best thing to do, if you cannot get it developed professionally where you are visiting, is just ship your undeveloped film home ala Fedex. I never had to do it. Can someone comment whether FedEx/UPS x-ray their packages?

One of the first I’ve seen that gives a real feeling for the size of that crowd. The most sensible sounding x-ray explanation I’ve heard was from a TSA lady in New Orleans who told me that dye-based films aren’t effected unless really high speed, but silver-based emulsions just shouldn’t be put through at all. Chemists chime in.

After 9/11 the x-rays must have gotten stronger, because they affect film regardless of what they tell at the airport. Get a roll of b&w negative. Have it x-rayed. Develop in one tank with a roll that was not x-rayed, hang both rolls side by side. You’ll be shocked.

I used to buy bulk films in the US and have friends brought them over to Europe. The last 100ft of trix I bought this way was practically unusable. No midtones. Completely flat. When I took this film on plane, it got even worse.

My conlusion – it is relatively safe if they x-ray exposed films. However, you have to be extremely careful with unexposed films.
