Need suggestions for dance recital.
May 15, 2013

My niece is having her first dance recital next month and I'd like to try to get some nice pictures for my brother and sister-in-law.  I'll tell you what I'm working with gear-wise, and a couple ideas I have; then I'd appreciate any feedback, tips, advice, etc, keeping in mind that I'm still relatively new at this.

I'll be using my T3 with either the 18-55mm kit lens or 75-300mm zoom, depending on how far we are sitting from the stage area.  I figured it would be best to bring both just in case.  I'm assuming the audience will be sitting in a dark or dimly lit area, as usual, and the stage will hopefully be somewhat illuminated.  I don't want to lug too much equipment, because I don't know how much space I'll have, but I've considered possibly getting a monopod to ensure a more steady camera.

Anyway, that's where I am now.  Suggestions on gear, camera/lens settings, etc, would be much appreciated.
