Abraham Lincoln Home
I had never been to the library before (Mike! You grew up in Springfield! Yeah… I know… right?) so that was pretty exciting. I may post about my experiences there later on, but for now, I wanted to share some images I took at Lincoln’s Home. While I had been there before, I hadn’t been there since I became a professional photographer so it was a great opportunity.
My only regret is that the lighting was even worse than I thought it would be. I ended up shooting at 800 ISO (I hate going above 400 at the most on my Nikon D60; it doesn’t handle the noise the way I wish it would, but what can ya do?), wide open at f/2.8 on my Tokina 11-16mm ultra wide lens. It worked out well enough, but I had more noise than I wanted and every room had these inconveniently placed descriptive placards (as you can see in some shots) so I wasn’t completely satisfied, but sometimes you have to take what you can get. Enjoy!
