This beautiful statue inside of the church was very dimly lit. I used a Sekonic electronic meter. Very moving.
My remote shutter was not engaging so I had to manually press the shutter, maybe lost some sharpness. Portra 800 is wonderful stuff.
The Rollei was set on a tripod, Portra 800, exposure time was about 1 second in the dim light.
