Terracotta Warriors Exhibit at the San Francisco Asian Art Museum

I had a chance to visit the Terracotta Warrior Exhibit just before it left the US and it was wonderful chance to see some of them since I didn’t have the opportunity to when I visited China in 2008.

It was a fun challenge to shoot in the galleries, as photography was allowed with no flash.  The lighting was very low and since it was the last few days, the galleries were crowded.  I prefer to shoot at ISO 100, to minimize grain/noise, and that makes it even more of a challenge in low-light conditions.

The following images were taken under these conditions, I hope to one day have the opportunity to visit them in China in person.

 

You can see all of the images, and higher resolution images, on my site at: http://jljfoto.zenfolio.com/terracottawarriors
