Performing Girls…

by on Oct.23, 2011, under Life, Photography

My girls were part of an annual performing arts night at our local school on friday night.

As luck would have it I also finally purchased a lens I had been lusting after for some 18 months, earlier the same day – the Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8. The new VRII model has a RRP of $3500 here in Australia but I managed to snag a second hand VR1 model for a great price and I gave it it’s first test that night shooting the entire evening with the lens wide open and hand held mostly from the back of the hall (and boy were my arms tired holding up that beast of a lens :)).

Note: These images (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger – so click any of the images below to see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer.
