Q: What is the best lens for theater photography?

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

"Air" in the Malay language, means "water".

It is also the title of a performance, that included dancers suspended in aid-air, that marked the opening of Singapore River Festival 2010 over the weekend of June 26 to 28.

I was undecided whether to shoot the event, as I had a great but tiring time shooting the Kids Festival, a performing arts competition for children aged 6 to 19, on Friday and Saturday evenings.

Then I saw some pics posted on a local photography forum. They were mostly badly taken, with lots of distracting lights and other mess in the background. I felt I could do better.

It wasn't easy though. I arrived late and the placed was packed. And the scenes were quite dark. (Or, as we say in the Chinese Hokkien dialect, "orlulu").

Luckily there was a final performance at 10pm on the Sunday night. Lucky I had my "poison" 80-400 mm VR lens. And oh yes, lucky I use a Fuji S5 Pro, which gives excellent low noise images shot even at ISO 3200,
