Leap ! (Extra Click)
Description: Leap ! ˇV Extra Click
While at my granddaughterˇ¦s dance recital, I snapped over a hundred frames, practicing fast action / weird lighting situations. Most of these are ˇ§recycle bin specialsˇ¨, but a handful worked well. This is one of them.
Shooting from about 70ˇ¦ away, I cropped this image extensively. For compositionˇ¦s sake, tried for Rule of Thirds, primary focal areas being her face and right leg.
Through trial and error that evening, I found a good settings combo: RAW; 1/500 sec; f/3.2; Auto ISO ˇV maxxed @ 3200.
In Lightroom and Elements, I adjusted tint to get good flesh tones, and a little noise reduction.
My D90 and 50mm f/1.4 handled this situation well, but I wouldˇ¦ve gotten better results with the D700. Didnˇ¦t feel like lugging around the heavier equipment all evening, but I regret that now.
