Face of a Bodhisattva
Went to the Freer and Sackler Galleries which are apart of the Smithsonian Institute to shoot their Asian collection. The lighting was challenging to say the least and I added an additional challenge, all manual focus adapted lenses. So the newest lens used was like 25 years old with some images being shot on 50+ year old lenses. So it was a real adventure. I just did this one first because it jumped out at me. While not perfect its not bad considering I was using ISO 2000 to keep shutter speeds up and shooting wide open on the various lenses used. One of the things I noticed is that these lenses are dead sharp in the center but start to fade on the corners when used wide open but with gallery lighting being what it was to stop damaging the various pieces no other choice. More to follow when I go through them.
