  • The grand finale:




    This year it's actually the 30th aniversary for this theatre production.

    And the next generation is ready to take over.

    • So to the next general rehearsal, in Katrineholm.



      Just in case you are interested, all the pictures from Katrineholm are available at original resolution on flickr, in case you are interested in studying noise and unsharpness...

              • Nice job, great pictures! I'm impressed by your sharp images with no movement/motion blur at all. Tried to find some Exif-info, but couldn't...., so just one question: how high is your ISO in general?
                And I suppose you use a 1.8 or max 2.8 lense?

                  If you go to flickr you will find exif there.

                  Generally ISO's are between 3200 - 16000. The idea is of course to keep down the motion blur. All pictures from Katrineholm are handheld, for Strängnäs I occasionally used a monopod. I have used both 7D and 7DmkII for these shots. The second generation produces a lot nicer noise at high ISO's while the first one seems to have richer colors. Luckily Lightroom is quite good at handling noise, but still some sharpness is lost during noise reduction.
                  You also need to keep the ISO up to reduce noise, underexposed pictures seem to add even more noise in post-editing.

                  There are a few lenses involved in these shootings.
                  Sigma 18-35 f/1.8: nice piece of glass. The 1.8 is both good and bad, you can get really short depth of field, which is not good especially when people are dancing/changing distance to camera. Usually I tried to keep it around 2.0-2.2. The lens don't have image stabilization.

                  Canon 24-105 f/4: my allrounder. Generally performs well as long as you keep up the exposure times.

                  Sigma 70-200 f/2.8: the oldie. The good part is of course the f/2.8 to keeping down the ISO. The cons are the that 2.8 gives you short depth of field which is even more critical due to the long focal length and the lack of image stabilization. I think that I get some soft pictures with this lens, could be due to the optics, but probably due to the lack of stabilisation. I will try to compare it to my 70-200 f/4 with IS to determine if that actually will perform better.

                  Canon 300 f/4: it's a lot of tele, but wow!

              • Very nice work: sailboats and concerts are both your talents, no doubt!
