January 2010. Client: The British Museum
4000 BC? No, 4000 ISO! There isn’t much light in the British Museum so as to preserve their many artifacts from the ravishes of light over time so in the preNikonD3S period which finished at the beginning of 2010AD taking photographs with no flash and being able to see anything in them afterwards was a problem. I am so old I remember putting film in my camera and worrying about pushing the development two stops; I now regularly shoot at 3200 ISO and the results at 6400 ISO are very good too.
This job was for theHistory of the world in 100 objectsproject. Did you know there are still people out there who can make flint tools?
