About the Book
During the month of April in 2009, I visited the town of Suchitoto in El Salvador. I mostly worked on a film set during the days and spent the nights enjoying the town and Easter week celebrations. Shooting under artificial lighting during the day may have affected how I saw the town at night. During the set work, the color temperature was perfectly balanced, while at night there was no consistency in any of the sources, even the streetlamps had all different types of light. Shooting at mostly 6400 ISO, I let my Nikon D700 decide what was best by leaving the white balance on auto.
