I took the Sony a7r ii to the Saugus Choir Concert last night to video my daughter. Her Jr. High Choir was making a guest appearance. As I waited for her to time on the stage, I decided to create a little photo challenge. The challenge I set for myself was to get a good candid handheld shot of the performers in low light from a distance. So, it was manual focus, a steady hand, aperture priority, -1EV to compensate for the high contrast between light and dark, and some fun editing in Lightroom and Photoshop to reduce noise. I like the results of this shot. It captures the moment.

If there are multiple photos in this post, the following EXIF data is for the first photo only:

  • Aperture: ƒ/6.3
  • Camera: ILCE-7RM2
  • Taken: 10 May, 2018
  • Exposure bias: -1EV
  • Focal length: 240mm
