    So my daughter has a play tomorrow at school. I usually just take my P&S because the last time I took my Film I liked the p&S results better. But now that I have a Dslr I want to try it tomorrow. It's horrible HORRIBLE! Did I say Horrible lighting in there! I'm planning on being in the front row or 2 and I don't want my speed light with the sphere sticking up in everyones way. So out of a ton of lenses I was thinking about bringing my 50 F2.8 and my 28-100 f3.5-5.6 or my 35-70 f4 What do you think? The stage is about 15ft from the front row. And I think my 50 would be my best shot for low light. But I want a few close ups 2

    I would say the 28-100 for the close ups, I my self would be taking my 50mm1.4 and my 135mm but that's just me.

    Don't over stress the lighting, the bulk of the lighting will be on the subject, granted it may not be what many would call ideal portrait lighting but it should be sufficient to get the shots you want.
