A couple comments about my blog: I have been hacked. The last two posting have had lots of comments from a travel site. I do not know how this happened but it did and to date I have not learned how it can be stopped.
Next, I was asked if I used any noise reduction for the photo that was taken at ISO 6400. No. I did no noise reduction for the posting that I used. If I were to print that photo, I would probably do a little noise reduction in Lightroom 4.
Today’s photo to me is about lighting. I like the way that the stage lighting was selectively on parts of the dancers. To me, it did a great job showing of the power of the dancer.
Camera settings: Nikon D4, 70-200mm f/2.8 at 125mm, ISO 6400, f/4.8 at 1/125th of a second on a tripod.
Lightroom 4—applied Nikon Vivid preset during import, set white and black points and added clarity, sharpness and vibrance and cropped image.
