Orpheus by jyokota


Yes, it's another practice photo of the opera! This one turned out with more clarity in their faces than in previous photos. This time, I used complete manual only, with a low ISO. Because German audiences are amazingly appreciative and clap forever, especially the one today at the Komische Oper, I had time to play around with the settings a bit. Taken from my 11 euro "limited visibility" seat behind a pole in the second to the last row, which is only 20 rows from the stage.

Very clear indeed, Junko. Well done!

Great curtain call image. Lovely set and nice and clear.

I agree with the others---you have it down! Manual is so much better. Now when I take a photo in auto, I spend an hour in processing. The other way around, I've got so much less to "fix"--What a lovely set too!

love this capture - it looks so much 3d. great lighting too.
btw. in studio i (almost) always use manual mode. full control what the camera is supposed to do - consistent results. i never use full automatic but often 'A' (i select aperture, camera sets timing...) ...but it all depends on situation - not one right answer to it
