I forgot to post this from a few weeks ago during a visit from the Dalai Lama. He is great to photograph (besides the circus involved with his security).
This was during his visit to the U.S. Capitol. They were showing a small movie clip so the auditorium went almost completely dark like a movie theater and the only light was the light bouncing off the screen back at him. I was hoping to get something like this but man it was dark!
For anyone with knowledge of photography, this is shot with a Nikon D3 | 200mm lens | ISO 6400 | f2.8 | 1/50th of a second and still bumped up almost a stop on the RAW file. For those of you who have no idea what that means, it really boils down to holding extremely still and praying.
