a99: The All Souls Procession
Nov 5, 2012

Took the A99 out for some night shooting for the yearly event in Tucson.  Light was quite dim, and all the ambient was from low pressure sodium lights.  Tucson has low pressure sodiums due to astronomy in the area.  The light is very strongly yellow.

I think the actual temperature is lower than Lightroom will go.  All the photos pegged at 2000-deg, and I think to fully correct the WB, it needs to go a touch lower.  All shots with Minolta 50mm f/1.7, most are ISO 6400, and all are RAW.  I was truly impressed at how nicely photos at this ISO came out. Luminance correction is set to zero!  The EVF made shooting this event very easy.
