Museum Photography

January 20, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

I really enjoy museums and particularly photographing in museums, though it can be a challenge, for many reasons. I think the lighting is purposefully done to make it difficult to take photos!

However, I thankfully have my trusty "nifty-fifty" - my museum lens. It's a fast lens - F1.8, which allows me to gain a bit more in making images in low light. 

We've discovered the Soumaya Museum here in Mexico City and it has become one of my favorite art museums. The collection is very good quality and varied. One sculpture that caught my eye the first time I went was the "Lady with Veil":
