Meet the Uzbek chai drinkers.
Believe me when I say I took a lot of pictures of them today.
They were most accommodating.
You have to love their faces. So content.
Ben, my 11-year-old, was quite interested in my study of exposure and depth of field. When he wanted to see what would happen with the smallest aperture and the slowest shutter speed (above), I told him we would need a tripod. (In other words, the good light was gone, and I was finished experimenting.) He ran right down and got the tripod.
When we opened the aperture a little and sped up the shutter, we were a little over exposed.
So we sped up the shutter a little more. It worked. Fun stuff!
Now a cup of chai is sounding good.
