    Got my tripod out this morning to take some shots of a bouquet of flowers in my family room.
    It's a rainy day so not much natural light and no artificial light (basically a dark room). I set the ISO to 100 and played around with the aperture then adjusted my shutter speed. NEX-7 + Sony Zeiss 24mm 1.8.

    The first shot was at f/7.1 with a 10 sec exposure. Despite overexposing in the EVF by 1/3 stop I found the shots to be slightly underexposed when brought into lightroom. I used spot metering. Not sure what the issue was but I had to adjust exposure in LR. This shot is cropped by about 50%.


    This is at f/2.5 with a 1.3 sec exposure. Cropped a little bit tighter.


    Finally, @ f/5.6 with a 2.5 sec exposure. About the same crop as above.


    Here's the same shot as the last pic shot in Auto handheld. The camera set it to f/3.5, 1/60 sec and ISO 1600.

    Beautiful shots, Chris. I like #1 best. The 24mm Zeiss kicks .... on the 7.
