Aria from Madam Butterfly by Barbara Mallon

October 2021 - Aria from Madam Butterfly

About the Image(s)

Livermore Valley Opera’s "Celebration" that they can do Live Performances again. They had the orchestra on stage and the singers sang arias from various operas. I am the opera photographer. This time I had to take photos during the performance so I was stuck in the cheap seats. This photo was taken at ISO 6400 and Topaz sharpener AI did a great job in getting rid of noise and sharpening it! This was taken with a Canon Digital Rebel 7TI and a consumer 28 to 125 lens! Shutter speed was 1/80th second and f stop 5.6. Some photos were acceptable at 1/25th second. Yes, some opera singers are over weight!

The image is plenty sharp. The lighting and contrast are very good. I would crop off at least the bald head on the far right, and probably the woman on right. That would make the woman singing the main point of interest. I like her singing and using her hands.   Posted: 10/14/2021 10:35:28
