See you used a Sony for this shot with high ISO wondering which camera. Do you have to do a lot of noise reduction with high ISO or is it real good at this. Thinking of getting a full frame mirrorless

Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo on the ground floor of the Marquis Marriott Hotel in downtown Atlanta.
Time
This was taken during the "blue hour" just after sunset.
Lighting
I also show this interior during the morning and at night. The blue hour had the advantage of even lighting through the skylight. The primary source of light was from the hotel interior in and the geometric sculpture (blue).
Equipment
I shot this with a Sony a7II, with a Sony 24-240mm and tripod.
Inspiration
My sister and I were staying at this hotel for the express purpose of shooting the amazing interior. We had shot it at night and in the morning, but the overall lighting was best in the blue hour shots.
Editing
I did basic raw adjustments, increasing contrast and saturation and used Nik filters to increase contrast.
In my camera bag
For shooting inside, I carry a fisheye lens, extra batteries and cards & cleaning cloth. I generally try to travel pretty light to save my back!
Feedback
Check out locations ahead of time. You can see interiors of places you may want to shoot on line. Checking out images ahead of time may help you decide where to stay (to shoot interiors) and also suggest angles and the best time of day to shoot. For interiors that are not brightly lit, a tripod is a must, as well as a remote method of shooting (I used the timer on the camera). Walk all around the area you can shoot looking for good compositions. In building with atriums like the Marriott, make sure you go both up & down for different points of view!
