Life in the Fast Lane


Welcome Back, Camera!

By 2:05 PM , , , , , ,

My sister's university dance group had their year-end concert last Friday and I finally had the chance to bring my camera out of hiding.

No more lengthy descriptions. I think I'll let the photos tell the story for themselves.

Equipment used: Jurassic Canon EOS 300D, and my Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 XR Di II, Sigma 70-300mm F/4-5.6 APO DG Macro lenses. No flash photography was allowed during the concert.

And then we find out that my sister has a leading role in the last dance. She didn't bother to tell us. I only knew when my lens happened to zoom in on her face. Surprise, surprise!

And a solo shot of her at the most intense point of her routine:

  1. Wow! You got some great stop action shots for such a dark setting. Very cool.

  2. Thank you! It was kind of hard to keep my hands steady especially with my telephoto lens. I'll really need to invest in a better camera (with more ISO noise control) or a better telephoto lens really soon though.

    How's life with your GF-1?

  3. I have two friends who are musicians and I've taken some stage pictures of them. It's not easy to do in that lighting with a normal tele. It's hard to believe you didn't use a tripod. I usually push the ISO way high which has variable results.

    I'm afraid I'm not cool enough to have a GF1. :) I have a G1 which is SLR like. I'm really a viewfinder kind of guy and the GF1 only has an optional one that costs additional money. Also the G1 has a rotating LCD screen which is great for when I'm shooting pens and such from a tripod. Anyway, I do love the camera. They just replaced it with some new Lumix G-series ones which look good too.

  4. First off, sorry for the über delayed reply! Couldn't find the time to take care of my blog last week. Boo, me.

    Anyway, sorry also for the camera model mix-up. The G1's pretty nifty as well! And as people say, it's really up to the photographer to capture the right shots; not the camera. I'm sure you'll take great photos with your cam!

    And thanks for the kind words. :) Yes, I didn't use a tripod. I guess I've gotten used to shooting in those kinds of conditions though there's definitely room for a lotta improvement. Looking forward to seeing where else photography can take me, actually.
