Indoor, Low Light, Action - How to capture pictures in a scene like this?
6 months ago

Canon 6D, Canon 24-104/F4

I had a chance to shoot an event with my friend last week. It was in an indoor scene, low light, and performance on stage. I was trying to capture the performers on stage but failed badly unless I cranked up my ISO to about 6400 (6D). I was able to get some usable images but they are a bit too noisy for my taste. I also tried using my flash, 430EXII but the result was a bit disappointing. It's sync speed limit and the low light environment made my shutter speed really slow and created all kinds of motion blur on my images.

What will be the best way to shoot something like this? Am I using my flash incorrectly?
