    Somehow stumbled on your forum here. Amateur photographer... kinda by
    accident. I took a cheap Olympus point and shoot to a dark hall to attempt
    to capture some photos of my niece's dance competition. No flash photography
    allowed. I pushed the ISO and tried to get what I could with a slow shutter
    speed. Nothing doing. 100 horrible photos.

    So I moved to a D70. Practice, practice, practice. Fun turns to hobby...
    hobby turns to obsession .

    7 months after the original competition with all of the horrible photos, its time to
    head out to another dance competition... $1000 wasted?. Nope. Pictures
    turned out good enough that the studio teacher has invited me back to
    take more pictures of her students.

    Pretty cool. I am happy with that. :)

    Here are a couple from my first experience doing it. I'll have a better seat this
    weekend and I won't have to hide as much for fear of getting kicked out. I just
    might have a few photos without people's heads in them. :)
    JPEG compression really hurts these.

    I'd like to say a big Hello from down I-45! We are always happy to have another Texan on board and I'm especially glad to have another Houstonian. Yes, yes Spring... well close enough!

    Great photos. I can't wait to see more.
