Here are a few shots of last nights performance in Los Angeles! It was my first time shooting a dance performance, but it was super fun. The entire post can be seen at my blog: www.charliechangphotog​raphy.com/blog (external link).

I should probably mention that the stage was not lit very well.. yeah definitely more grain than I would like. The specs are 35L ~f2.2 1/400 iso 12800.

Last is not sharp. Others are nice: Good timing on most, but a few cropped limbs.
Good job in such low (and difficult) light.

I'd remove the chroma noise a bit.

The ISO is the problem... remove a bit more noise in post.

Decent job for such difficult lighting to work with. I agree, be careful not to crop across arms, hands, and feet.

Thanks for the comments guys. Yeah, I looked like a fool squeezed between hundreds of people in the very front row and I couldn't back out anymore :/ What's the best way to remove noise in photoshop?

I'd remove the chroma (color) noise in the raw converter…
If you want to do it in PS: Filter > Noise > Reduce noise...

drop down that speed from 400. Sure there's tons of movement, but anticipate those still moments/transitions that happen.

shot #3 is so nice with how tight the focus is on his face, while the rest of the frame is all chaos
