Last week I was in Basel and Zurich to attend two art exhibitions, the Art Basel and the Manifesta 11. Of course, I took my camera and shot over 2000 photos total. Here are my favourite ones from Basel.
18 mm, f/5.6, 1/1600 sec, ISO 200
19 mm, f/5.6, 1/1000 sec, ISO 200
Obligatory panorama. Totally not edited (just kidding). I didn't have a tripod, so I had to do this handheld. Not my strong suit, but I'm happy with the result.
Panorama, 4 photographs; 18 mm, f/3.5, 1/640 sec, ISO 160
The building that houses the Art Basel is pretty rad itself.
115 mm, f/5.6, 1/125 sec, ISO 500
A lucky snapshot. Didn't have time to adjust the settings, thus it's underexposed and there's quite a bit of noise. I like to shoot in manual mode, but for occasions like this I should probably get used to using a semi-automatic mode.
76 mm, f/5.6, 1/125 sec, ISO 640
I'm wasn't sure if I wanted to show pictures of the pieces of art. A while ago I've read a discussion on reddit about the relation of 'cool pictures' vs. 'pictures of cool stuff'. Pictures of artworks probably fall in the latter category. So I will only post the photos that I believe to have some aesthetic/photographic value on top of the beauty of the artwork itself.
35 mm, f/4.5, 1/200 sec, ISO 800
50 mm, f/5.0, 1/60 sec, ISO 400
50 mm, f/5.0, 1/60 sec, ISO 250
Check out my pictures from Zurich & the Manifesta 11 as well. Also here's a rose from Basel. Cheers!
