hello to everyone - im new here! im using a friends D7000 to video a dance recital and was wondering if yall have any suggestions on the low lighting situation.
the show will have regular spotlights as well as colored spotlights. i will setup the camera on a tripod approx 50ft from the stage. i do have a zoom lens but i need to have a full shot of the stage for most of the recital. i understand that i shouldnt expect great hd quality in a low light situation but any suggestions on how to achieve a decently good video would be greatly appreciated...
i only have about three weeks to do research on this before shooting the recital so im trying to learn as much as i can to get the best results!
thanks so much,
p.s. i should add that i am doing this for a friend that owns the studio. its going to be copied and sold to the students (so i AM getting paid for the job) but i do edit work so the shooting part has me a bit nervous :-)
