Newcastle Museum Series – Wardens Gas Mask
It’s the first time I’ve visited the Museum and taken photographs there since it was relocated from Hunter Street, Newcastle West.
A Wardens Gas Mask (from the National Emergency Services) on display at the Newcastle Museum in New South Wales, Australia. I think this equipment is also from the First World War, but I’m unsure. The Gas Mask was displayed in a glass cabinet in a fairly dark room with down-lights, so I used the Flash (and turned down the Flash Exposure Compensation to -0.7) and stood at an angle so the flash burst didn’t bounce straight back into the lens.
The shot was taken using a Canon 450D with a 55 – 250 mm lens set at f/4, ISO-200, Exposure = -0.3, 1/80 second, 55 mm and Flash -0.7 in Shutter Priority Mode.
