Time for some dark places shots.

 

Quite a challenge. No flash allowed, no tripod allowed, dim lights, big open spaces, objects of interest very often dozens of meters away.

So The only way to take a shot was bumped up ISO (1000+) and slow shutter speeds with bracketing +5. It came out that the slowest shots were all blurred so I stayed at 3, cause the fastest one was just too dark :D

 

They are not tack sharp, obviously, but I guess they are quite nice. First time making photos in such a harsh environment.

 

Anyway here are the shots from amazing caves system.

I'd think about getting a couple of the more dramatic shots printed...really!

David do not worry. There will be two photobooks. One portrait one landscape. So there will be a place for quite a lot of those shots ;)

 

Reciprocityrules thanks :) It was fun but pretty hard :D
