rat on computer - 2

Comic-Con: Friday

Day 3 of my increasingly erratic photodiary.

(By the way, I've barely been skimming my friends list -- I'm no doubt missing a lot. I'll try to catch up gradually when the chaos is over, but it may take some time.)

Also, I'm hurrying, so my post-processing kinda sucks.

Comic-Con: Farscape

I took photos of the Farscape panel from six rows back. The room wasn't well lit, and I was right on the edge of needing ISO 1600 instead of 800, which is a pretty big jump in graininess with my camera. I used 800 as much as possible, but I needed to hold the camera pretty steady (and people needed to hold fairly still) for it to come out well. Because it was borderline, I couldn't use the zoom (though I could with ISO 1600). I also learned a valuable lesson about spot metering so as not to totally overexpose everyone's faces.

Anyway -- the panel was Brian Henson, Claudia Black, Ben Browder and Rockne O'Bannon. They talked about the upcoming DVD release of the full series, and were pretty amusing. Alas, I cannot remember what prompted any of these facial expressions. I was kind of figuring on this as practice for the Doctor Who panel :).
