Hi all, I'm a bit of a newbie to the forums so please forgive me if this is posted in the wrong forum :blushing: A friend of mine is in a pantomime this Xmas season, and I'm going to watch in about a weeks time. Shes asked me to take some photos (I have a Canon 300D), but I'm not too sure about the settings. I want to get it right first time as I only have one oppurtunity to see the show. I tried this type of photography a few months back, and only produced 3 or 4 images which I felt proud of to have my name on. Obviously it's going to be mainly dark in the theatre with the stage lit up. What sort of camera settings am I looking at here? I'm on the understanding that if the ISO is bumped up incredibly high then although the photos should be lighter they're going to be pretty grainy, but if the shutter is open for too long with a lower ISO then if the cast member moves then they're going to be pretty blurred? I'd really appreciate any help you can give. Thanks! :mrgreen: Regards, Mike.
