Ancient Faces

When I finally got around to shooting with the Sony RX100M3 I went to the Arthur M. Sackler and Freer Gallery of Art in Washington DC. I have shot there before but I did it all manual focus stuff and wasn’t pleased with the images. One of the interesting things about shooting in a museum like this is the light changes from blinding to non-existent so ISO ranges are all over the place. It was a good test of what the RX100M3 can do.

I did this series based just on the faces of the statues. Most are buddhas or bodhisattvas from various regions within Asia. The final image is an image of the Buddha himself, Siddhartha Gautama.

These are all composite images. Still working on getting the kinks out of my new editing system which means getting my Photoshop back to where it was on my old machine. So there are some editing “issues” as I finally realize I missed a setting on my previous images.

Hope you enjoy.
