    I shot some pictures this morning at my church's Christmas program. Nothing really special, but thought I'd share some holiday cheer.

    I love that one of the camera guy. I like how you can see what's going on in the background on his screen and the silhouette is so crisp.

    Nice work!

    Thanks, everyone. Jonmikal, it is pretty difficult to get the exposures with the constant changes and spotlighting, but I'm getting a little better at it. I was going back and forth on manual for a while because the compensation just wasn't enough, but I just changed the range of the compensation and pretty much eperature priority plus or MINUS 2-2.5 stops seems to work most of the time. I don't get to shoot concerts as much as I'd like, but shooting at church really does seem to be helping get in that practice.

    "Nothing really special", you say. IMO, the colours, composition and the mood you have captured are fantasic. Thanks for sharing.

    AWESOME! They're all good! Some much better than others. fantastic how you got the exposures right now, no grain (not that i can see at least), sharp, and the colours are amazing.

    Is the guy in the leather jacket supposed to be a fallen angel, returning, born again, to the kingdom of Jesus Christ after a long vacation in the bowels of sin city?

    Walter, I'm not real sure what he was meant to be. Our church is pretty big on accepting all kinds of people regardless of what they look like or what type of person they are, so I guess the program tried to show people from all walks of life. The guy in the matrix-like coat is actually one of the music teachers there and is a pretty crazy guy anyway, so I bet he was just being himself.

    Ferny, I appreciate the compliment, but I wish I would have had a zoom on me and maybe have tried some creative shots. Everything there is pretty much just shooting it as-is. Other than hitting the exposures and framing, there was no real contribution on my part. I did have a few failed attempts at movement with the conductor, but they weren't as effective as I'd have liked.

    Thanks for the feedback everyone.
