But it all depends on your subjects. This is the Jessica Star Band at the Spoutwood May Day Festival. Sometimes it takes 100 photos to get the one that shows chemistry in a performance and Jessica and Joseph Blackfeather have great chemistry.
Geeky Photo Stuff: Nikon D90 (from 2008) with a Nikkor 55-200mmG VR lens which costs barely more than $100. Very nice image on the cheap. Note the bright background. It’s a challenge to get good definition with this kind of lighting, but waiting for clouds to pass by and using your Adobe highlights and whites slider bars can really help.
