Got some of my photos of the region's big annual Christmas dance show displayed in Stavanger's largest dance studio. Despite lack of the finest details, the five 1x1.4m large pics look ok to me. They were all shot hand held in difficult lighting with my D3 and the old two-ring 80-200/2.8. Silly of me perhaps, but I gave the studio my images for free.
Will post a pic later showing the postered wall.

Even if you gave those images to the dance studio for free, they will work good for your promotion!

I Sten, nice work... I guess you shot at 2.8: may I ask, what about exposure time and ISO?
Thanks in advance.

Yes, I hope so. Would be nice to get some money out of these efforts :)

Thanks Marco!
From the top of my head I would guess I shot at ISO 4-5000 and f/3.2. It is (to me at least) notoriously difficult to nail the correct WB and hence there is quite a lot of work to get the right compromised WB set.

Nice work, Sten! Thanks for posting the images.

If if this is covered under the adage "teaching your grandmother to suck eggs" - apologies in advance, as I don't know your frame of reference on stage work: I often provide a mix of corrected WB, and as-shot (if slightly enhanced or adjusted, from de-sated or slightly de-sated to punched) - because the stage lighting is intended to create an atmospheric, emotional effect - and the skin tones are not correct. However, if you take the whole shoot to corrected WB, you are de facto correcting the impact of the lighting designer on the tone of the piece. LD's for ballet and opera, in particular, enjoy - as do the choreographers, company directors and audiences - the impact of the lighting design for a piece on the emotional flow of the piece... much as the score of a film can have an enormous impact on the emotional tone of a movie. I often mix them, allowing the actual - even if grotesquely off-kilter - lighting to play through in the final images of those on which is appears to have the most impact - versus the images which might play better with corrected WB for other purposes (where eccentric lighting is of less value, or where the potential value of a particular image for marketing purposes indicates both renderings).

Look forward to more, sir!

Cheers, from an obscenely beautiful day in Atlanta -
