I took this photo today at a dance recital; thought it was interesting enough to share. Canon XTI, 85mm - f1.8, tripod.

Very cool I like it.

Why were you using a tripod when you were getting a shutter speed of 1/125 as I would say this was very restrictive?

It's a shame the feet were cut as that would have made it even better (downside of needing the brightness of a prime) and if you get another chance I would go for putting the dancer on the left 1/3 and the shadow close to the right 1/3 line as that would make it more balanced.

I brought the tripod as insurance; I guess I don't have complete confidence in my hand-held shots in darker conditions. I was restricted to a shooting position between 2 persons seated in front of me. Unfortunately, I don't have a fast zoom lens, althoughmaybe the 18-55 kit lens would be a better choice shooting at a high ISO.I'd lose some of the close up effect with 55mm, however. Oh well, I'm leaning, and I do appreciate your comments. Bob

you would really be working at or beyond the limit with the kit lens so I would suggest sticking with the 85mm (I love mine) and will probably be using it tomorrow night for some work as we have a ball and want to capture some of the band. If you had a little cash and wanted the option for wider then pick up the 50mm f1.8 as that also gives great results, especially for the very low price.
