When you have dancers dancing at very fast paste, and inside a dark place, its all about getting the right moment, otherwise they are all over the place. What do you think?. You agree?
I completely agree. There are multiple challenges. The lighting in the area would be low to create the ambience. The crowd movement and obviously the dancers themselves. So it’s very important to get your shutter speed right to match the speed with which the dancers are moving and also to get the ISO up to the precise levels and most importantly the right angle and lots of patience to get the right shot !
Well Done Aashish, With such answers, it makes my day because I know that what I tought in the class really sunk in. Thank you
Choosing the right moment is the key Salim, at 1/45sec any movement would ruin the shot; a well anticipated shot.
Exactly, now imagine I used a leica which has MANUAL focusing. I had to use zone focus technique and it was the most difficult shot. But i think I managed eventually
Well, I say you did a pretty good job. I’ve been in this situation, and it didn’t work out for me 🙁 BTW, I’ve been to Turkey 3 times. It’s the most visually stimulating place ever imo.
You shouldnt be sad, trust me it wasnt easy for me at all. I think I consider I was lucky in this one. The above pose of the dancers is the only pose I could have got the photo, otherwise they were moving all over
Yeah, same challenge for trying to photograph the whirling dervishes. But, in their case, some blurred motion can enhance the images 🙂
also at the setting you have mentioned,the most important thing is to anticipate the pause from the dancers and release the shutter.
Well Done, this what I was looking for. I was ANTICIPATING the pose. I had no choice but to wait until the stopped to take this shot.
