Default Rodin Bronzes

I just put up a page with 6 hand-held wide-aperture shots of Rodin Bronzes taken just before sunset at the Norton Simon Museum in Pasadena using the 85mm f/1.4D.

Tricky light...

Click the example image or the link to visit the page:

Rodin Bronzes page&lt;/a>

Nice collection, and thanks for the tour. I appriciate all the people here that post photos from where they go, it lets people see things that we may never get a chance to see ourselves. I know its not like seeing it live, but its still neat to see it through a "freind's eye".

Thanks again for taking the time....

Default Wonderful photos...

I agree with Brooks in the post above. I like seeing photos of places I've never seen or haven't seen for awhile. It's very enjoyable! I feel as if I am there...

I especially like the play of light & shadow in the photos of Pierre de Wissant(that hand really creates a sense of depth) and The Thinker.

Thank-you for sharing.

Darby, I went there after closing specifically to get the pre-sunset light. The bronzes look best either in shadow or with early-morning or pre-sunset light in my opinion -- it gives you more to play with and highlights are more controllable in the shadows than they are in direct sunlight. Of course, shooting them in that sort of light requires fast glass or a tripod... that's why I was carrying the fast telephoto.

I'm pleased that you liked them. It seems that this sort of thing is an acquired taste.
