Cheshire Cat
« on: January 16, 2014, 04:03:22 PM »
I was shooting the first dress rehersal of our local home School play last night.  they are doing "Alice in wonderland" this winter.
The costumes are amazing, and the ultra violet lit scenes with all the purples and blues are going to be a big challenge, enough that I switched my 5D MK III to Adobe RGB to capture as broad a spectrum as possible.
The Cat is a 9 man cat, so it does have nine lives :D   Its about 25 feet long to the tip of its tail.
 
all these are at ISO 26500 except for the photo of the break. The reason is that I was using a fast shutter speed due to the dancing amd movement, and have suddenly encountered some severe tendonitis and just leave the camera controls set.

 
 
 
Things are starting to fall apart!

I'm sorry to hear about the tendinitis (I know all too well about that) but those shots came out great.  Those conditions are really though to shoot in, and it's easy to underexpose those vivid colors and clip the color channels in the shadows.  Turning the RGB on the histogram can help, as can DxO's "Protect saturated colors" feature. I can't remember if you use DxO or not, but if you do, that can really help bring out the detail in oversaturated colors like the guy's face in the final shot.  It's cool you got to shoot the dress rehearsal as practice, I'm sure the play will come out really well.

I only shoot at ISO 100 with perfect technique - should I get a Nikon?

I think almost everyone in the school is in or involved in the play.  Its a home school in a tiny town in Northeast Washington.  They borrow the theater from the local high school.  The theater is mind blowing as well, lots of cities and Universities would love to have it.  Somehow, the town just supports theater, and it is thriving.

That's great to hear and I'm sure you'll have a blast shooting it and sharing the photos with everyone.
