Dec 2013 - Interiors / Low light- 1 of 2

Our challenge this month was to take shots inside under the difficult conditions of the light being low, perhaps in a social environment where the subject might move. Many of the photographers took this opportunity to experiment with the settings on their cameras, with interesting results. The photographers chose their own favourite shots.

Bob experimented with settings taking the same firelight shot. This one at 1.3 secs, F 2.8 and ISO 200, with no flash worked much better than attempts using a higher ISO value.
