    hmmm, I realized I forgot to WB all the shots! . I thought the yellowing was kinda nice for some, but you made me realize that the color was off!

    He was actually wearing a black suit. In here it's a lot more black (but not totally as the stage lighting can do weird stuff).


    Here's another:

    Yeh, stage lighting has a mix of colour temperatures. Impossible to get spot on.

    Nice one (two) Frank.

    FADED ROSE

    Two for the price of one. The first is from the minolta 35-70mm f4. Second from Beercan.
    Note the more contrasty rendition compared to the smoother Beercan (and shallow DOF). But terrific Minolta colour.

    Camera: A700
    Aperture: AP - f/8
    White Balance: Daylight
    Metering Mode: Spot
    Flash: No
    Date: 19November 2008

    Lens: Konica Minolta 35-70mm f4[1] Beercan 70-210 f4 [2]
    Focal Length: 60mm [1] 70mm [2]
    Exposure: Auto - ISO 100 - 1/100 +0.3EV [1] 1/25 +0.3 EV [2]

    Second has much better bokeh, but still quite distracting IMO. I think I would have tightened up on a few flowers and focused on those (or it). I think the one on top would have made an excellent candidate for more of a macro flower shot.

    Peter thanks for the advice, I will try it out this week and see what I come up with, not sure even with a monopod how much motion blur I would get with 125 sec. isn't 320 about the min to avoid blur? I have got some pretty noise free shots at 1000, and 1200 ISO. I do think tighter framing less background objects and less cropping will make the shots seem far less noisy.

    Elisha, nice portrait. The background isn't too terribly dark, but something like 1/40 would have helped even more to lighten up the background. In a low light situation, don't be afraid to use also use that large aperture if need be (although it does get soft which could be a good and bad thing).

    Yeh! Think you're right dr4gon, I should have gone tighter.

    I think the same is true of Alesha's too. Nice one BTW Alesha.
    I'd guess you were about six feet away, so if you'd moved in a couple of feet and gone down to f1.7 (both actions reduce DOF) the guy sitting on her head may have disappeared. You could also have moved left a foot or two to remove him from shot.

    FROSTED ROSE

    I think this is the last we'll see of the Rose Bush this year. We had our first real frost of the season night before last night so that should polish it off. Not that I'm complaining, you understand.

    So here's a frosty view in the early morning sun. Brrrrr.....

    the shutter speed is auto based on what the flash thinks it needs to get it properly exposed.
    i think with the built in flash it would have defaulted to 1/60th.
    i'll have to try going fully manual and see if i can get more ambient light.
