First rule in travel, verify all information given! While working in Argentina, I decided to head out late to capture a cathedral shot with another one of the show crew (Rob). Its kinda cool on these gigs as there are a few other photogs! We checked with the concierge to confirm times, and to be honest with you, I think he just made them up!
Although the concierge told us the cathedral was open late, really late, we arrived to a fairly dark interior, lights being turned off, and 2 watchman with keys in hand ready to close. After a little pleading, I was able to crank out 5 exposures and that was it! It was really dark in there. Thank goodness for HDR!
