North Ipswich
General location: Australia, South-East Queensland

The Setup:

We took Evelyn to see 'Frozen' at the cinema, a movie that ticks enough boxes. Second time at the cinema for Evelyn and first time since she became a self-aware neural network. The big screen and loud noises scared her enough that we had to carry her out a few times and ended up missing the end.

Also a harsh lesson that not everything can be paused like PVR and Netflix. No, we can't go back and watch the rest - it finished without us.

The camera & lens:

Camera: Sony RX100 II
Lens: Sony RX100M2 fixed lens 10.4-37.1mm f/1.8-4.9 (28-105mm equivalent) @ 10.4mm
Exposure: 1/4" @ f/1.8, ISO 3200 (3/10 Av, auto ISO limited to ISO 3200)

Post processing:

Lightroom 5 -

  1. Crop & rotate
  2. Convert to B&W
  3. Basic: Highlights -30, shadows -100, white clipping -100, black clipping -70 (The camera auto exposed trying to brighten everything, but I wanted to return the scene to the darkness of the cinema).

The wash-up:

Moving to manual exposure (or even exposure compensation) would have helped here as I could have chosen a faster shutter speed. I didn't want it that bright anyway.
