A Muslim couple waiting for the start of a mass wedding ceremony for both Catholic and non-catholic couples

Tech Notes: This was shot using an expired kodak Tri-X film rated at ISO 400 and processed with Parodinal at a dilution of 1:25. From what I remember in the past, Shooting in situations like this where there is a great difference in light meter readings inside this shaded area and outside where the sun is at it's peak, I used to rate my film at half the ISO rating which is at ISO 200 and then reduce the film developing time by 25 percent which effectively is shooting an overexposed but underdeveloped film to reduce the contrast .
I also re-learned that the Parodinal solution is better with a dilution of 1:100 to reduce film grain. Everybody should have a refresher course in film developing if possible because digital shooting makes you forget thr beauty of film's behavior.
