"The Final Reading"
©David A. Ziser
Here is yet another image from my "temple shoot" last Thursday. This shot is always one of my favorites. The wide angle lens really adds a sense of the "dramatic" to the image. In reality, the Torah is never unrolled this far. Rabbi, let's me set up the photograph this way for the added impact with the wider, unrolled Torah. I adjust the exposure to pick up some of the natural light then adding my off-camera flash coming in from camera right to obtain my final result. Camera specs; Canon 7D fitted with 10-22mm wide angle lens at 10mm, F6.3 @ 1/60 second, ISO 1000. Enjoy! -David
