A little bored and wanted to test out the 5DII under REALLY low lighting (ISO 3200). Not much thought put into this - just shot and hacked together in under 30 minutes. YES, the lights are hot... I didn't feel like unpacking my lights or softboxes, and was way too lazy to do any other light modification.

Just a quick and dirty test of the 5D2 with a Nikon-compatible Sigma 28-300 f/3.5-6.3 with EOS adapter (which allows you to control iris on the 5D2 in video mode). No color correcting or anything.
Joshua read about the House of Light designed by James Turrell on PingMag. We decided to try to get a group together to go out and stay there. As usual, we both got so busy, we ended up going by ourselves.
The art installation/house is in Tokamachi, Niigata, which is relatively out-of-the way in the countryside of Japan. The area is well known for the Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennial. The House of Light or 光の館, is a beautiful house that can hold seven people. It has a Japanese style bath, sleeping quarters and a kitchen. The main event a room that goes through a subtle light display during sunrise and sunset. The ceiling opens up framing the sky in the lighting around the ceiling of the room.
The whole house as a very Japanese-style attention-to-detail, a practical and livable layout and a well-designed art installation feeling.
I'd recommend it for any group of up to seven people who want to spend a weekend together in a beautiful and peaceful place.
got my 5d mark ii today, this is me unboxing it.
