Faye Patton @ Stratford Theatre Royal

I had the pleasure of meeting and photographing Ms Faye Patton this evening at the Stratford Theatre Royal. Here's a few of my favourites:

Faye had already informed the bar and staff of the place about a photog going shutter happy, and her main desire was to have shots of her playing the piano, with the keyboard, hands and all. Hopefully she will find them useful!

The body I took along, was the D300. Again, the light levels were low. Not Monkey Chews low, maybe half a stop more light? And the surroundings were much more diffuse. Lens wise, it was the usual duo, the 28/2.8 and the 50/1.8 (I'm sort of thinking of buying a 50/1.4D... but nah. Dof is narrow enough as it is). Was agonizing a little in the morning about bringing the 16-85, but decided to just shoot fixed focal lengths. Not a bad decision, given the lighting.

ISO was fixed at HI-1 (6400) the entire evening, and with a touch of noise ninja, it is simply amazing when I think back to the horrible scans of 800 iso film...
