    Thank you very much for your words and thoughts!

    I will go to the ship the next week again and I hope to take more photos... it will be my second time in the ship and now, I know the people, the ship, theire work a bit more!

    Sionnac, I don't know this book but I will try to find information on internet about it. Thanks!

    mferrarini, I had big problems with the exposures. It was night when they were working and I had only their artificial light, so I had very high contrast scenes. Until now, I worked with an Olympus E-3 DSLR and I was used to use "Puntual" exposure system (no matricial or central) and in the Zeiss Ikon I only have a central pondered exposure system. It has been dificult to me exposure well. I was all the time thinking on how to exposure well. Every time in manual mode, I didn't use "A" mode.

    There were some moments where I needed a 35mm focal lens but I didn't have one, so I have bought an 35mm 2.0 for my next "try". I will be able to be nearer in some situations (I hope so) with a bit more of "depth of fild".

    Excuse me because of my bad english and thank you very much again.

    Good work Shab - congratulations. Night photography can be tricky to get used to, but is very rewarding when you do. Those lights certainly do give a lot of contrast. Try using a very fast film (I usually chose TMZ) and look for pictures in the areas that are out of the direct light from the floodlamps.

    Fishermen always make great subjects:

    Two fishermen discuss their livelihoods after their fishing grounds have been closed due to oil contamination.


    Here's a night time pic using ambient artificial light:

    Cheers, Paul.

    how did you figure out the metering? and what was the film used? sorry if I missed this in an earlier post. I read through and didn't see it. Great work!

    EDIT
    never mind the film, I found it. I'm also guessing you guestimated the exposure.

    The past week I went to the ship one night more. There were more see (2-3 meters) and a lot of wind. I had a bad moment in my body (I was a bit ill because of ship movement in this sea...) but I have some photos to develop... the next week (in some days) I will go to the ship again... it's true: the sea is going inside myself!! I hope I will bring here more photos for you.

    Thank you!
