About a year ago, I did a series of assignments for The Fresno Bee. This shot is from an assignment to shoot a night of a choir from one of the Visalia high schools performing what turned out to be a really professional night of beautiful music.
I’ve unfortunately forgotten the name of this singer, but her voice — well, let’s say that this image doesn’t come anywhere near doing her justice, and not just because the acoustics are missing.
I’m posting this older shot because my court schedule (in my “real” job, I’m a criminal defense attorney) has kept me too busy to play with my camera lately. I hope to resolve that soon, as I’ve borrowed a really nice Canon 300 mm f2.8/L series lens and I recently bought the Canon 5D Mark II body to replace my old Canon 5D (which is now for sale, if anyone is looking for one).
No flash, 1/80 sec at f / 5.6, ISO 3200, 400 mm (EF100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM).
