I have read that photography is the art of writing with light, so everything gets complicated when the light is poor. Sofia has launched an interesting challenge for us.
The cameras, the mobiles, manage the light better and better, but if we want to ensure a good shot and not be disappointed later, perhaps it will be better to work in manual and be the ones who decide the settings.
Whether it’s a sunset, sunrise or a dimly lit interior, we will have to use technique, a tripod or some light source will also help us.
In an exhibition on George Méliès I really enjoyed portraying the automata from the film Hugo by Martin Scorsese.
My little X100 behaves very well in low light, its maximum F2 aperture and managing high ISO very well.
I love to take pictures when we go out for some “tapas”. A few years ago, I used to carry a backpack and a bunch of gadgets, my old Sony A350 didn’t work well at high ISO. Now I use my mobile, I go lighter, I finish earlier and I enjoy tapas and vermouth for longer.
Paul Newman’s gaze can illuminate our hearts and any corner…
Well, maybe the lamp also helped and of course my little X100.
In this image of the beautiful Alfredo Kraus auditorium in Palma de Mallorca, I wanted to highlight the lighting, so I closed the aperture and looked for a good point of support, lately I don’t usually travel with a tripod.
