Lalique Hood Ornament

    Newer Older

    I used a longer lens to capture better quality cropped details than I would get with my normal all-purpose lens.

    I shot most photos at ISO 6400, but a number of them were also at ISO 3200.

    shegum, Dill Pixels (THE ORIGINAL), and 3 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      Wow, I've never seen this one in real life, so far. You get great results at the high ISO settings.

      Thanks. I might have shot this at 200mm, hand-held. Everything is hand-held at Blackhawk.

      I don't know if it's my imagination, but everything seemed to be darker in the museum.

      It is a great photo,did you use a 200mm 2.8 lens?,It is so sharp for using a higher ISO,normally there is a price to pay and the shot gets compromised.
      Do they not allow tripods in that museum?,it seems a bit unreasonable but I suppose one bafoon and le coq could easily become history in a different sense.

      The museum is very dark, and the last thing anyone desires is some "aisle hog" or more appropriately a "baffoon" with a bunch of gear spread out, including tripods. It's also a safety issue.

      I am very happy and thankful that the museum allows non-commercial photography, which fits my situation.

      Upon my many trips to the museum, I have learned to employ better skills in working in difficult lighting situations. I'll return and try again.

      My camera is known to work well at high ISOs, a Nikon D700. ISO 6400 can be "iffy", so I usually bracket my exposures. A bit of underexposure will result in a massive blooming of noise at that ISO.

      Yes, I used a 70-200mm 2.8 lens.
