Stairs - Shelburne Museum, Shelburne, Vermont

This stairway photo was taken in the Electra Havemeyer Webb Memorial Building at the Shelburne Museum. I wanted to post this photo, as it was the first time shooting with my new Fuji XT-2 and I wanted to test out its high ISO capabilities. For those of you who are interested, this was a hand-held shot at ISO 12,800 at 1/45th of a second at f8. Shooting with these settings a few years ago would have been impossible, but sensor technology is advancing at such a pace that nothing surprises me anymore. Even with the settings pushed so high, one would expect lots of noise in the resulting photo. I was quite surprised that although there was some noise, the algorithms in Lightroom handled it quite easily. All in all, I won't hesitate shooting at high ISOs with the XT-2. By the way, the Shelburne Museum is well worth a visit if you are ever near Burlington, Vermont. I will be posting some more photos from there and will talk more about this great museum.
