Morning, pals! Here’s a little question to get your minds going: see how the rear indicators are on in this pic? Do you think they pulled the flasher module and turned the hazard lights on so the lamps would remain on, or did they just turn on the flashers, let the lights blink, and take more photos, selecting one where the lamps were on?


I don’t know the answer, but I’m curious to hear your ideas.

1960-what? 24 exposure film roll and no auto winders.

Answer: Tripod, cable release, small aperture opening, and long exposure duration. Like photographing fireworks.

Remember when taking a photo involved pointing a light meter at the subject and then turning two knobs to adjust the camera? Then putting the film in chemicals to develop it and making a print to find out if it is usable?
