Photography Question 
Paula A. De Stefano

Daytime, indoor restaurant

I always have trouble with exposure settings when shooting B & W in low light conditions. I want to get some shots of friends at lunch in a restaurant that has low light, but is not dark, i.e., some sun light from the windows. I bought a new film, Neopan 1600, that I thought I'd try and I'll manually adjust apeture & shutter speeds according to my meter (old Nikon, F1??) but I don't want to be spending all my time metering. Can someone suggest an easy approach to this, or explain my choices? Thanks!

Jeff S. Kennedy   If the light is even and the same on all your friends then you only need to meter once.
