What is your favorite place to take photos?  I am still up in the air. I always seem o go for the big landscapes or vast distance photos.  However, I have begun working on some close-ups.  Does anyone have suggestion on a photographic style they would like to see me attempt?  I could then write a post outlining my trials and tribulations.  Click the “leave comments” link at the top of this post.

Today’s Photo:  The Blue Room

This is one of the exhibit halls in the Museum of Asian History in Washington D.C.  I just loved the blue along the ceiling.  I don’t know if this is a skylight or just a back lit light.  But, however it is done, it is cool.  The only things lit well were the actual exhibits, the galleries themselves were very dim.  This was handheld, 3 exposures.  To get the shutter speed where I could hold it, I had to crank up the ISO.

    Daryl, I encourage you to take a short trip to the Boothe Museum of Western Art in Cartersville. Our Blue Ridge photo club organized a trip there when the Ansel Adams prints were on display for some thirty days or so. I could not the believe the “little” town of Cartersville had such a large and sophisticated museum of bronzes, paintings and miscellaneous art media. All were of a Western theme (cowboys and Indians, if you will). For $40.00 per year you can become a member and receive free admission and an interesting monthly newsletter. They also have a photo club, if you live close enough to enjoy their regular meetings. They do NOT allow the use of tripods(monopods are OK, though).

    • Barrett, I will definitely have to check that one out. And the plus, it is not too far from home. I Have seen the building and knew it was there, but have never thought of it. I guess I should try for some more places close to home.

  2. Love your style, not too much, not over the edge, subtle. I like to do it this way as well. I invite left, would love to enter the HDR Spotting arena.

    • Lucien, thank you. The interesting thing is that I used to do the “over the edge” stuff, but have toned it down considerably. I sent an HDR spotting invite via twitter. I enjoyed your work posted on Flickr and think you are doing well.
