Here are two pictures I took in June with my then very new Kodak Z712is superzoom. I was delighted with its performance as well as that of the singers, many of whom are good friends of ours.

The lady on the left with an eagle on her shoulder is godmother to our children, and it was her retirement concert after many years in the choir.

Dim and very mixed lighting were problematical, and were discussed in http://forums.steves-digicams.com/forums/view_topic.php?id=576134&forum_id=18&jump_ to=781353#p781353
whenI posted the first image in August. This shot is at ISO1600 1/30s, and the second one is at ISO200, 1/8th second, hand-held but steadied on the rail of my pew. I'd been invited along to photograph a presentation to the conductor and also the whole group, but I wisely 'delegated' that to my ex-pro friend and his Nikon kit.

I posted this one because of the extreme involvement of two of the singers! I hope I look that committed when I'm singing (in choirs less expert then this one).

Good morning Alan. I put the first pic through Noise Ninja. It improved it quite noticeably.

Alan,

These shots bring out the communal aspect of musical performances as well as of course the talent of the participants. I would you have shown how well a participatory activity can bring people together.

Bynx, great use of noise reduction software. Thanks.

Aloha

Do you have a link for that Noise Ninja? That is quite the difference!

Well... I thought that was what this forum was for? I figured a posted link would be good for other members besides myself.

Next time I'll just google instead of asking here.
