Re: A Sampling of What I've Done

This is a sample of some of the shots I've taken. However, last year they went to the lighting I described above. So I would like to be prepared and assume they'll do this again.

These two examples have apertures of f9 and f13 respectively.  Good grief!  What sort of exposure are you using?  In theater, manual is your friend.  So are f2.8 and f4.  A used Tamron 28-75/2.8 isn't expensive or heavy.

I photograph a Jazz Company that loves to dance in the dark. I deal with it.

And I use lots of flash in studio. Big bag of speedlights.  Big bag of monolights. Even a big bag of tungsten fresnels.

But the stage is already lit.  A couple of speed lights are A. Dangerous to dancers and  B. of little use, power packs or no.
