My "assistant" photographer that morning - 8 year old Kyle! ;-)
Kyle snapped this picture of Summit Principal David Finnel with dorky photographer Alek
Photography Notes: A total of 331 pictures were taken with a
Canon 7D & 50D with 10-22 & 17-55/2.8 lens attached.
The gym has very good light due to lots of windows and manual exposure was used (EXIF in images),
but somewhat challenging is the different color temps between daylight and the overhead lights.
I must have accidentally bumped the aperture setting on the 50D, so the 10-22 pictures don't have
as much depth-of-field as I wanted. But I was pretty happy with the 17-55 performance
as fast glass (F/2.8) is good, so was able to get 1/60s@ISO400 and 1/125@ISO800 ...
plus I used some fill flash.
So while still some motion blur in a few pics, it's nice to have low noise & clean images ... hi-res originals look darn good.
It was a fun event and hope you enjoyed the pictures courtesy of Alek Komarnitsky at www.komar.org
