Jennifer Schofield

Having dinner with Jennifer Schofield tonight was really enjoyable. We went to Tropika: a Thai and Malaysian place that has a well deserved reputation among my friends for excellent food. In particular, their scrumptious sauces deserve commendation. So too does the experience of conversing with Jenn, who is on her way from Calgary to Nanaimo. A co-graduate from UBC and a fellow member of the NORAD trip, I am sorry we didn’t take the opportunity to spend more time with one another while still in the same city.

Tomorrow, I am going for a hike with my father during the day. In the evening, I was meant to have dinner with my whole family, but it seems that Mica cannot make it. All told, I have spent less than two hours in his company since arriving in Vancouver, though much of that can be put down to his duties as a residence advisor in Totem Park. I must make a point of heading out there when he will be free enough for us to hang out together.

PS. I know that photo doesn’t do Jennifer justice, but it is the best of those I took this evening. We can only work with the lighting conditions we are given. Here is a better photo of her.

The two flash shots were worse. Hopefully, I will have the chance to take more photos of Jenn sooner rather than later.

Actually, for what it’s worth, I disagree about the better photo.

“We can only work with the lighting conditions we are given”

The ones taken with a flash are worse? She still looks very good.

Just goes to show that aesthetics can vary. The only real problem with this photo is the dark patches under her eyes, created by the overhead lighting and not corrected for with a reflector or fill flash.

Looking at the bigger version, you can really see the noise from the sensor. This must have been shot at 400ISO +
