Canon 5D Mark II/7D San Miguel de Allende Diaries Post #10

Here are a few shots of the graves from the Day of the Dead  – actually taken during the "night of the dead." :-)

Yes, I know the pictures are busy, but the scenes were packed with busyness. However, I wanted to share more than one shot with you. What's more, seeing these pictures in a set like this also adds to the busyness. On that note: when displaying pictures in a gallery or on a web site, adjacent images affects how we perceive an image.

Click on the image to enlarge. Yes, size affects how we perceive a picture, too.

When shooting in low light:
• Shoot at a low ISO for the cleanest possible picture.
• That said, some cameras, such as the 5D Mark II, offer very low noise at high ISO settings. I often shoot at ISO 1000 or higher when needed and don't ever worry about the noise.
• Don't forget your tripod.
• Pack your flash.
• When shooting at low shutter speeds, use a cable release or self-timer.
• If you use a flash, try to get a mix of natural light and light from your flash.
• Bring a flashlight so you can see what the heck you are doing! Find some here.

Explore the Light,
