About the Image(s)

This was taken on an indoor performing arts stage with black curtain backdrop. Theater lights for lighting. They were a bit on the reddish side which I didn’t realize.

ISO 1250, 1/500th, f3.5, 150mm. Shot in aperture priority - Exposure compensation of -2 to get the background black. Minimal post-processing.

This is almost full frame “ no cropping.

This is a winner, Dan. Everything is just as it should be. I can't think of a thing that would improve it. This is a money shot.   Posted: 09/17/2020 16:57:35

Thanks everyone. I had someone behind me ask the chef to turn his knife so the light hit it. It made all the difference.   Posted: 09/18/2020 10:09:45
