I was invited last week to a special local blogger/photographer pre-public event at the National Geographic Society, celebrating the visit of the extremely rare-outside-China terra cotta warriors. DC was the last stop on a four-city tour; they had 15 of the figures on display along with roughly 100 total pieces.
We only had an hour to visit, so I spent 59 minutes shooting the two galleries. (That one lone minute was for light-testing and a lens swap-out.) Though I shot nearly 150 photos, I ended up with about 95 worth anything. Shooting without flash is difficult indoors, especially in a soft-lit exhibit space. Still, I think I did decently well.
You can see the photos in my Flickr gallery. I’ll post a smattering here, after the jump.
