School Productions

A really busy week this week, four nights of school productions with the kids, great fun and kids had a great time. I took a lot of images during the shows for myself and the family but also for the school, I had my 80-200 f2.8 out with SB600 flash, camera set on manual (mainly around 1/200s @ f4) and it seemed to go pretty well.

The school seem happy and I have lots of images for friends and family. The older kids’ show was great fun; my girls insisted on watching it even though they were tired. It was title “Grandma joins the World Cup All Blacks”, here is Grandma dusting her wrinkles.


I have done a few of these indoor events now and seem to have found a method that works for me at least, the white balance can still be fun but I get pretty decent images that don’t need to much work in Aperture or Photoshop – important when there are 100’s of images to work through.

    • Yes, it makes life a bit easier, even with the D700 I would struggle otherwise – the stage wasn’t very well lit a lot of the time.
