Space Shuttle Endeavour - CA Science Center
Nov 24, 2012

Massive, beautiful, awesome.

X-E1 / 35mm / f2.8 / 1/60 / ISO 1000 / Monopod

Challenging environment - she's temporarily on display in a dim, "intimate warehouse", tons and tons of people jockying for a shot, white halogen? light. You can only walk alongside and under the shuttle. Wished I had the 14 / 18mm lens b/c you're too close in with the 35mm.

Had I my druthers / more time / less people, I would have shot tripod, f8 / f11, ISO200, and however long shutter speed necessary. In retrospect I was a bit too conservative with ISO and could have up'd it to 3200 / 6400, which would have allowed maybe f6 / greater DOF, at 1/40-1/60 shutter with monopod, and handled noise in post.

Go see the shuttle now mounted horizontal before the permanent vertical mounted exhibit.

Fujifilm X-E1
