View Full Version : Handel at Our Church
9th of May 2010 (Sun), 23:33
Our industrious music director puts together nice concerts twice a year with the church choir and a mix of church and pro musicians. The 70-200 f4 IS seemed really versatile and useful in this situation. The challenge was overall low light with bright highlights. ISO 3200, f4, exposure compensation -2/3.

The 70-200 f/2.8 would have sent your ISO down to 1600 in a low-light situation like this... ;) You did very well at ISO3200, though. I'll take Handel at any lens.... :D

Yes, this is really good for 3200. :D

Yeah, but it also would have given less (too little) DoF ;)
Image is underexposed a bit IMO. Not much though. About 2/3 of a stop I'd say :mrgreen:
Pity the harp is blocking a face.

Yeh, that was my decision to shut off all the blinking highlights by going -2/3 then trying to recover the darks in Lightroom. If anyone thinks its better to leave some blinkies happen in concert photography let me know. This is my first try. Re: 3200 iso I use Noiseware on the preset called film grain effect. Its consistently my favorite. Thanks for your comments.

Nice pic, but the music major in me has to ask: What work were they performing?

Some blinkies is okay IMO.
You can then pull them back a bit in LR.
