Museums are low light, right? We spent Monday afternoon at the Smithsonian Natural History Museum in Washington, D.C. The dinosaur exhibit is definitely low light, at least. We wanted to go see it one last time before they close the dinosaur exhibit for remodeling for FIVE years.
The rocks and gems exhibits had several dark spaces too, including the room with the flawless crystal sphere. I discovered I could photograph people upside down in it. I didn’t have many willing subjects, unfortunately.
In one of my favorite memories of the day, I photographed my son here in the Hope Diamond room, where he walked over to me and said, “I read that entire sign all by myself!”
Early this morning I realized it was Project 52 posting day and, thinking I hadn’t photographed any low light already this week, my first thought was to photograph my sleeping children. Of course! 😀 This was really low light, as it’s a western facing bedroom with curtains closed.
Finally, here is my favorite because I captured emotion. My kids are playing video games on iPhone and iPod.
Please let me know what you think in the comments and then continue on our Project 52 blog circle to see more low light photography! Next is Danielle at Lilac Blossom Photography.
