From the first year I shot my granddaughters' recital. I used a 1D and a 70-300 IS lens. The studio's best dancer is on top. My younger granddaughter the girl who slipped on the bottom.

The year my daughter didn't like the dance studio photographer's work, I got to do the shots my way.

Love this thread. I've fallen in love with shooting ballet. I was asked to shoot a few pics by my daughter's teach a couple years ago, and I found it extremely challenging but addicting. I've done quite a bit since then. Much harder than it would seem....always learn something new with each shoot. I tend to do a good many behind-the-scenes shots.

Here are two BTS photos. This was from a tech rehearsal. The lights were terrible, but then it was the first night in the venue so they hadn't worked things out. Also, these are scenes you'll never see in a performance. No matter, these were very cool people, and I love the photos just the same. Enjoy!

UPDATE:

Note the EXIF data shows these were done at ISO 25,600. They were actually done at ISO 20,000. Fwiw.

If that was for me, no I haven't. Mostly I shoot whatever my grandgirls are in.

Same dancer I posted earlier just a different performance. Has been out with a possible career ending injury for the last two years.

Almost looks like they are being held up by the dancers behind them...

A little dark, but I liked the look on the faces on this one.

Amazing pictures! This is a great representative of what each camera body can do in non-studio environments. Beautiful!!

Thanks, The 70-300 DO is my undercover lens for venues that discourage pro equipment.
