Hello All,

Last nignt we attended an opening of Haitian Artist Tiga, - Jean Claude Garoute, at the Queens Museum of Art.

The show included many works of art from several Haitian and Haitian-American artists. The art was really colorful and beautiful.

There were several photographers and videographers at the event.

We were just attendees, but of course, I had to try to capture a moment of the event with my R-1.

Here is my try:

Interesting picture Nicholas. There is a lot going on in this shot. I was wondering however why the gentleman in about the middle of the picture seems to have lost half his body while everyone else seems to be whole. :-) Great shot of a large gathering using the stitching process.

Hi,

Some of the people were moving. The entire room was about 150' long. I was trying to capture a moment none of the other photogs would think of.

It was very dark and all I had was my built-in flash. You can see the World's Fair Unisphere in the middle window. This is a shot only the R1 could make possible.

Thanks for your comment.

Nicholas

Thanks, Nicholas, for another arm-chair panoramic journey into your world ... lately I have been concentrating on mastering PS, but your work has inspired me to try panoramas and I will be trying my hand at them in the very near future. Susi

Hi NIcholas . That is an heroic shot .... so many people.
You just used the R1 in-camera flash? The lighting certainly looked good.

thankyou

Hello All,

Glad you found the image interesting.

Yes Glyn, I used the built-in flash The white walls helped and you can increase it upto two stops. When shooting overhead as I did with this shot, you can see the flash light flood the room and hear it 'pop'.
