ZD35-100 for non-flash reportage work [PHOTOS]
Oct 9, 2011

Last Thursday I shot a reportage at the opening of "A Rua" (The Street), a new exhibition at the Antwerp Museum of Contemporary Art (MuHKA).

In the context of the "Europalia" Festival -- that focuses for every new edition on the art and culture of a specific country or region (not necessarily european) -- this exhibition showcases the work of contemporary Brazilian artists whose work is closely related to street life, the favelas and other typical urban phenomena of the metropolis Rio De Janeiro.

I had full access but had to follow a few guidelines : no tripod or flash, and no photos that concentrate solely on the art pieces themselves (as in a catalogue).

Fine with me, because I like to concentrate anyway on the interaction between art and audience.

I took my E-3 and E-5, mounting the ZD35-100 on the E-5 with grip, and taking the ZD12-60 and ZD8 for the E-3. The experience showed me once again that the ZD35-100 is a great piece of kit, offering a useful range for portraits and telephoto shots in low and mixed light. The wider lens on the E-3 complemented nicely for a few more general views.

The whole gallery of the event (including outdoor capoueira in a small corner before the building, lit like a cave), is here :

Take a look if you feel like it.

And here are a few samples (concentrating on the ZD35-100 output, almost all wide open):

As always, all comments or C&C are welcome.
