Seaton Performance: Last Words

The Seaton Students never fail to deliver a great performance. This time we were treated to three one act plays at The 27nd Street Theatre Company. Check out all the photos from the show on my SmugMug site. Prints are offered at reduced rates from these performances.

I rely heavily on my fast primes for theatre photos. Mostly I use my 85 1.2 or 135L but I usually try out a few shots with the 300 as well. I do bring out the wide zoom for a few shots as well for each show. If the lighting allows manual exposure is the way to go but if the light changes too much I will usually shoot on AV and underexpose the shots at various grade.

Denmark - a visit back home

It had been about five and a half years since I last took a trip back to Denmark. I grew up there and lived there till I was 28 years old. This time around I decided to make it a surprise visit. It was a great way of doing it and I will never forget surprising my brother in Copenhagen and my cousin and the rest of the family on the West Coast in Lemvig. I spent a few days in Lemvig where I grew up and then took the train to Copenhagen where I spent a few days with my brother. I wish I could have stayed a bit longer so I could have visited more of my friends and family but I will have to save that for next time

Of course the camera was never out of reach. One of the places I visited was the fishing town of Thybor√łn. It is usually extremely windy in this part of the world so I couldn't believe my luck when I had a sunny week and hardly any wind.
I decided to travel light so I had left my longer lenses at home. I just took the 5D no grip, the 16-35L, 85L and 135L . Follow the link for a trip to Denmark
