Rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate...Timothy 6: 18

Yesterday my husband and I attended a meeting in our town held at the high school auditorium and sponsored by Pierce Pepin Cooperative Services. The members voted for the board of directors ...This lady was one of the speakers who was nominated but did not get elected. I shot this picture three rows from the front of the auditorium and switched from auto to manual focus as there was a bit of extraneous light coming in from the entrance which did not work well with auto...I was surprised this turned out as well as it did for hand holding my camera and from the distance where I sat..

    Nice job! It is SO difficult to get a good shot without tripod and low lighting. You did well!

    Thank you for your comments...Yes, it is tricky in itself to shoot in a big auditorium but auto was out of the question as the meter was fooled by the black curtain in the background with bits of stray light coming in through the entrance where she was standing that washed her out completely..so I had no other choice but to use my manual settings...It was good practice...

    Thank you, Andrea. I think one reason why I was able to handhold the D3000 camera is that it is fairly light weight compared to my D7000 and the Tamron 18-270mm lens that I have on it is not the heaviest lens either..If I had been using my D7000 I would have had camera shake
    with using a shutter speed at 1/15 second because that camera is very heavy.. In fact I now
    mostly use my D7000 for bird photography and macro shots with the camera on a tripod.

    Portraits using ambient light can be most effective if done right. You did a great job, Andrea!
