OMG I'm so tired! O_O
But I've gotten around to finishing up the photos I took at the masquerade.
First off, it's really tough shooting any masquerade. The stage is really badly lit, there's lots of fast moving action and there were these stupid speaker/monitor things at the front of the stage. That's what those black boxes you see in the pictures are... so annoying. X-P
So in order to get any usable photos I used my 85mm/1.8f Canon lens and shooting at 1600 ISO. So the images are pretty grainy and since I was using a fast, fixed lens, I couldn't zoom.
But it's a very interesting experence shooting that way. You have to think fast in framing and working around annoying obstructions like those speaker/monitor things.
I posted the usable ones here:
