This one was shot with the Nikon D600 at ISO6400 and f/1.4. It was very dark except for a wall washer on the building behind me. This camera is amazing:
Supposedly the people inside this house were dressed like the 60’s, but the volunteer who relieved the other volunteer at the door told me I had to wait. I don’t think she got the memo about how members of the media get to cut in lines in order to bring these wonderful pictures. It worked out great though because I ended up taking pictures of Mayor Parker later (see yesterday’s post).
I have taken this same picture every year since I started coming here. I think I started out with the Sigma 10-20mm on my D90 in the past. It’s amazing how much detail this camera can capture.
And of course I couldn’t resist doing a timelapse video of it with the D600 while I used the D90 to go around taking pictures. I’m in this video too if you can spot me:
