    Thanks Rafael - luckily the shoots start in a month and will last until August :)

    Some glamourous location shoots, and a lot of catalogue style shoots, which are not nearly as exiting lol.

    Patience only. Few of those shots took about 10 minutes to acheive just waiting for folk to move! Also, it was 3.30 on a weekday, so very quiet anyway. Several of the shots where HDR which was annoying as the last shot was normally around 3-4 second exposure just as a pleb walked into view lol.

    Once you go and pay, they give you an annual ticket, so I intend to revisit, I only had an hour and a half in there, and really needed more time for more detail shots.

    I think next time I will be taking the D700 though, I really thing the high ISO of that camera would make the place sparkle (much as the GF1 was fun, I do think situations like these would be brought out better with the D700).

    Craig, congratulations on your new project! Maybe you can sneak in a few :43: shots.:biggrin:

    Very nice cathedral interiors, but can you tell me what appears to be a sort of pie with candles?

    Pie lol.

    Basically a big pot of sand. You light a candle I believe for pray.

    Now in hindsite it does kinda look like a rubbish pie doesnt it.

    Thanks Craig for this series. Congrats on your new 2011 collection shooting.

    Thanks Herman

    The commercial work will be done with FX....although I am tempted to ask someone to document the shoots reportage style with M/43, nice and high ISO.
