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.

Alister: An experiment on a local view just as the light was fading. A street light gave a point of interest.
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.
Carina also experimented with different lighting on the same composition. This shot using room lighting (table lamp) was taken at 1/60 at F5.6, ISO 3200 using Shutter Priority.
Claudine: Arles - Rencontres de la Photographie. This composition worked well. Taken at 1/125, F5.0, ISO 800 on an automatic setting.
Leighton - Ocean Terminal. 1.40 F4.0, ISO 500
Ingrid: Taken on an automatic setting, this came out at 1/30, F3.5, ISO 100. No flash was used.
Former Member Bruce sent in this cheeky interpretation of the "interiors" topic.
Liam's favourite shot was this birthday action picture. 1/125, F3.5, ISO 250, no flash.
Marjorie: fire in Pitlochry Hotel.
Noreen took this delightful candle-lit portrait of a young girl. Extra light was provided by a kitchen striplight, with a brown towel as background. Taken on a manual setting with no flash, 1/80, F5.6. ISO 3200
