Once On This Island

I took photos at the theater this evening. I stuck with my 85mm lens and shot everything at ƒ1.8. The lens was fast enough capture all but the quickest action. I did not manipulate the ISO. I used spot metering.

While it would have been nice to have a zoom that would open up to a f-stop beginning with a one, I think a 50mm Nikon D-200 85mm ƒ1.8 lens in addition to the 85mm will do.

That first photo is pretty impressive considering the environment.

Why not turn on the flash and annoy the patrons while making the scene look like a frame capture from South Park? (Kidding!)

Are you doing RAW mode? I wonder how that one would look in grayscale. (I have a color vision problem, and red tends to bleed when it's too intense, and look green/gray-ish when it's subdued.)


Thinking of RAW files, and on the off chance that some of the readership are using The GIMP, here's something they may find handy:


Yes, there's a Windows installable version. I have tested it, and it works.
