Today's shot was taken inside the Marae at Manukau Institute of Technology. There's some beautiful carvings in here created by some very talented people. You may have already seen the outside of the Marae on some flickr shot I posted earlier?
The light levels were quite low inside the building, but the woodwork was quite dark also. I would have to use flash or boost the ISO to get the shot. Using the camera's flash wasn't really an option as I'd get some nasty shadows and reflections, so a high ISO and a wide aperture was chosen as the best line of attack.
I took a tripod with me, but as there were a few people milling around inside the Marae I elected to hand hold the camera. Perhaps a bit of a mistake?
Hand held, 50mm, f2.8, 1/15sec, ISO1600
