Exploring the Vatican

Vatican Tour

If you go visit The Vatican, I recommend that you get the private tour. I went there with my family, and it was just us and the tour guide. We got to skip the whole line to get in, and our tour guide was incredibly knowledgable. I even went to Catholic (Jesuit) school for four years, was saddled with four years of Theology and another four years of Latin, and she was telling me all kinds of stuff I had never heard about!

I wasn't allowed to bring my tripod inside, so I had to try to be steady-freddy handheld! It makes it a little easier holding the Sony A7r Mark II because of the sensor-stabilization. I can shoot handheld as slow as 1/5 of a second and still get a steady shot! It's quite incredible actually…

    Great shooting. I would have had to ask the guide why Catholic leaders tried to stop the common people reading the bible for100’of years, and why they have taken Gods name Jehovah out of the bible when it is in the manuscripts that they keep over 7,000 times.

    On my first serious outing with a new OM-D EM-10 Mark 2 and having just bought Aurora HDR Pro and worked with a few photos after watching your tutorials I went to Cambodia on a trip I had booked before the I got the camera or software. And I hand held lots of shots of Angkor Wat. I don’t know if I got away with 1/5th of a second but I did get dark interiors sharp at quite slow shutter speeds relying on the in body stabilization and Aurora HDR Pro took care of the rest. It worked just like I knew what I was doing! If you haven’t done Angkor, I recommend it and I got enough that I may not have to go back to do it right!
