My seat was about 50 seats back. While the convention center was very dark, the stage lights were super bright white.
I don't have the camera and I am not sure how to get my settings on photobucket but I am pretty sure what I used.
ss 1/500 ap f 8-9 iso 400 to 800 Focal length around 70mm
I give these numbers because this was everything I tried. I also tried a SS of 1/250 to let in more light but it was too slow to stop the action. I know a tripod would have been better to use but I was in a seat that really did not make it possible. I also tried balancing my camera on the seat in front of me as well as changing my ap but I stuck with the ap noted to "try" to keep everyone in focus. I do not believe flash was allowed so I did not even try it.
My question is with my situation what could I have done differently? My daughter has one more preformance and I really want to get it right. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
