Black Belt Test - April 25, 1998
Unfortunately, my fears regarding the old flash unit came true. Alex and I still managed a few good ones, though. The first photos are ones that I took using my Nikon F3 with Fugi 400 speed film.
We start out the action with Jared. Alex got some nice shots of him below.
Next, it's Dean's turn.
Lauren fires up.
Given all the difficulty I had with my flash unit, it is a statistical aberation that I got all four of Kyle's breaks. Notice Kyle's momma taking pictures in the background. I wonder how her's turned out.
The boards are flying in the next photo.
The photo below was one of my shots but just with a different role of film. Notice how all of my previous shots had a green tint. I took several shots of Mark, but this is the only one in which the flash worked.
Alex took these next shots using a Nikormat ftn and Fugi 200 speed film. Notice how Alex's shots also have a blue tint. Alex got some very nice shots with his 25 year-old camera.
Alex and I did a tag-team with Dean's jump side kick. I told Alex to get him in the air and that I would get the break. (Boy, it is very frustrating when your 9 year-old takes better pictures using very old equipment.)
I would not mess with this guy. (Alex and I both got the third shot at the same time.)
I took these photos but with the second role of film. The green tint has dissappeared.
