Indy Shots in Progress

My new Nikkor 28mm f/1.8 prime lens has given me new opportunities and challenges, and one of them has been the ability to better capture dark ride interiors.  Since these spaces are dimly lit, and I'm always in motion while going through them, the level of difficulty is certainly high.  But a nice wide angle, open aperture lens does make things a little easier by enabling me to use faster shutter speeds to take shots.

Below are some attempts on board the Indiana Jones Adventure, a most complicated attraction to photograph.  With all the jostling and turns and shaking, it's quite difficult to come out with something relatively crisp but not blown out by too high of an ISO setting.  I think I can do better, but these turned out well enough that I'm somewhat comfortable showcasing this on my blog!
