The Lion and the Photographer – Austin, Texas

I stepped inside the Buddhist temple for a few minutes, and a lion showed up. That colorful creature is the star of the lion dance, which is arguably the biggest attraction of the Chinese New Year celebrations.

The photographer is associated with the temple — sporting a vest worn by the staff. In her hands, a serious professional camera, the Nikon D4, which is typically used at sports events like the Olympics. She’s feeding the lion a red envelope containing money, which is for good luck, I believe.

I haven’t extensively tested the high ISO capabilities of the Fujifilm GFX 50R. But, the ISO 3200 in this photograph looks very clean. I have no qualms about using it. Coupled with an f2.8 aperture, I shot at 1/125seconds, which worked well inside this dim temple.
