I expected something entirely different. This is great. It's about the child more than the dance--and so well done.

Awesome shot! Did you have to crop much to get this framing?

Actually, this is not cropped at all. It was taken with a 7d and 55-250. The lighting was horrible and i was shooting at 3200 iso. I was roughly 40 feet or so away and am surprised it turned out as decent as it did. There was a little NR done in LR.

You probably have several more years of recitals in front of you. Get used to horrible lighting. My most hated are deep red and dark blue

LOL - wow during my daughters Christmas recital I was cursing up a storm when editing pictures.... there was one point on stage where the background was red, the dancer was wearing red, and the spot lights were tungsten... while the stage lights were daylight temperature!!!

That recital forced me to learn how to use raw files for all pictures of recitals going forward :)

BTW - way too many of the shots from the Christmas recital are in black and white purely because of the colors!

Not bad, I know last year I shot from further than 40ft with a 55-250 STM, shots were actually pretty decent at 6400 iso. I love the angle on your shot thought :)

Nice shot shaunmcfd.

Of all the types of photography I do, dance recitals are the most challenging for me. Plus being only twice a year, there is not much of a chance to practice in between. One tip I found here on this forum was just to go ahead and set to tungsten. Worked pretty good for me last time.

Here is a quick edit of my oldest. I am trying to get a hang of the editing part of these and it is tough.

Yep, set to tungsten, use raw files and, when in
doubt, convert to monochrome.

Somehow I scrolled this thread from bottom up. Loved the pure colors of the shot a couple frames above me. Great discussions too, I shoot school performances along with concerts in a small venue... I face this challenge most of the time. It was this environment that convinced me to do the RAW thing. No more muddy looking faces in the shadows! Well, I finally got to the comment about and then the actual image that started this thread and i was blown away by the beauty and the moment you captured. Fantastic work!

Shooting raw and convert to b&w when the light is forcing met to. In fact the extreme blue or red light is allready quite monochromous.

Wait until you have to deal with LED stage lights mixed with tungsten. It drives me crazy!
