Fiddler on the Roof

Last night I had the privilege of seeing a dress rehearsal of Pine Creek's production of Fiddler on the Roof. The are a great group of kids with a wonderful production. The play will run Wednesday through Friday this week and you can get tickets here.

I learned a lot with the 400 some picture that I took in 3 hours. It was the first time that I ran out of room on a card before I ran out of battery. The lighting was low and we were not allowed to use a flash. So to get pictures I used the manual setting with a shutter speed of 1/60th of a second and an aperture of 4.5 as that was the largest and fastest aperture that I could use. The pictures would have turned out ok if I didn't have to boost the ISO to 1600. There is a lot of noise in these pictures and the sensor seems to have a line on it at the higher ISO's. There were a couple people there that were using ISO of 3200 but I guess they had a much better sensor than I did. Let me know what you think of the pictures. If you have any advice I welcome that as well.

Nice job. i thought it was a poster. You nailed the fiddler. Looks pro to me. Keep it up. you ought to bring your camera to work and take a picture of stuff in the field. you might also get an intersting photo of something at work.

Keep going it is getting better.
