Visited the Eliason exhibition yesterday at Tate Modern and this was one of the rooms. This is straight out of the camera, just the raw file converted.

I only used my little compact, the Panasonic TZ100, and because of all the different lighting set-ups I used the manual Kelvin setting to readjust the white balance to get the correct colour for each room. It worked well.

In another room there was a flashing exhibit and I found the video button for that one as it was in pitch blackness, so I learned something. I've still got to work out how to get snapshots from the video though, so that's another thing to mug up on, not that it's something I'll ever use in the future, but you never know.

PS: If you're thinking of going, wait until the school holidays are over.

There was an exhibition very similar to this at the Hepworth Gallery here in Wakefield last year. I took a quite few images, in near pitch black, just using the iPhone X, and it performed very well 😀 Great presentation here, Chris 👍

I like this! I might have cut-off the light(?) at the top to tighten it up.
