A few days ago I was asked, at short notice, to shoot some photos of movement performances at NunArt Guinardó, Barcelona. Usually I shoot rehearsals, where I can move with the artists & direct lighting enhancements if necessary, but in this case it was a public event, with very low lighting, in a large space; also I was constrained to shooting from one position, which was between 4 & 15 metres away from the performers. All in all this was a challenging shoot. I shot with a 50mm f1.8 lens, handheld, at between 1/30 & 1/100 sec shutter speed with ISO between 500 & 1000. I set up two presets on the camera which I switched between depending on the area of the stage I needed to focus on; one for the lightest & one for the darkest area, which I then made individual adjustments to as required.
The resulting images are a bit too granular for my taste, though I like some of the movement blur.
It was an enjoyable night with some great performances & an over-capacity attentive & affectionate audience.
