... Disney's Beauty and Beast performed at Carl Sandburg Middle School in Alexandria, VA by MVCCT. This weekend is their last show so google MVCCT and get tickets. 40 kids make a magical musical. It was visually amazing to climb all over the stage with them.
Majority of the show was shot with a 16-35mm 2.8L but the 40D has a 1.6x crop factor. Can't wait till the 5D MkII is out with a full frame sensor. Needed the widest angle to try to catch everything going on... on stage. It is a fun challenge to correct for the colored gels on the hot spots and eke out enough light to shoot something non-soft... faster than 1/60th. If only that lens had image stabilization!
