Need help w/ daughter's Dance Recital Pics
Feb 15, 2004

Every year I try in vain to take good pictures of my daughter at her annual dance recital. This year I think I finally have the equipment to do it right, but I am entirely a novice and am clueless to most of my camera's settings.

I have a new A1 and 5600HS (d) flash. The theater where the performance is is dark and only the stage is lighted for the performance. In the past I only had the built in flash of my 7HI. All my photos were either too dark, or totally blurred.

My wife will kill me if this year (my third year trying), I can't get good shots with all we've invested in equipment. The manuals only go so far and I am constantly reading this forum to get guidance and tips, and so far have found it most valuable but still need help.

Any assistance on how to set the camera and flash would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you, Joe
