This is the full Orrery at the Long Now museum. The last time I shot in the museum I was limited to available light, and so I shot just the base of the Orrery from an angle: gigapan.org/gigapans/2770/Now I have lights (2/17/11), so here I experimented with shooting the full orrery, shooting straight into the window and trusting that I could balance the ambient window light with the light from the flashes. I had three flashes in this shot, the two main ones on either side, and then a little flash with a purple gell on the base-I am experimenting with the idea of treating curated spaces, like museums, as 'found objects' to be remixed into new compositions solely by the way the spaces are lit.

My experiments on this have not pregressed very far yet :-) Right now I am at the point of adding a little new color in one spot, but it seems fun. And short of a tota colorl remix, having control of light and being able to light all of an interior scene so that it gigapans cleanly is a wonderful goal! I have so many images of interior spaces which, frankly, are just lacking because of the light.
