Bittersweet. The last Read Headed Zombie show ever was back on Halloween. It’s something that I’ve played sets in, I’ve been part of their art/music contests, and have generally hung out with a lot of these people for years now. My roommate was one of the performers that night, and he’s one of the first people I met when I moved here from Ohio. I think he’s singlehandedly responsible for me knowing the people in these pictures.
As this was a special occasion, I broke out my last two rolls of Cinestill 800T and put those through the Spotmatic, plus some more of the expired Tri-X through the Trip 35 (those were mostly so underexposed that they were unusable, even though I tried developing at 3200…the usable ones are the last two shots in the series). I’m really pleased with the Cinestill, considering I shot it 1200-3000 and didn’t push. They did start getting pretty grainy, but it didn’t bother me to make some black & white, the grain looks just right, then. They really turned the lights down low for most of the show, I was shooting wide open at 1/30 and 1/15 almost the whole time, handheld.
Here’s to you, guys. Whatever comes after RHZ, I’m sure it’ll be fantastic.
