It is no lie, I greatly prefer shooting in natural light but sometimes, you gotta work with the cards you are dealt. Last Friday night I was asked to bring my camera to a friend's show and treated to a pint of good brew. The lighting was alright but from where I was seated it was a challenge to get any decent close-ups. I'm proud to say that I am getting more confident shooting in manual and I was able to adjust the ISO to where it didn't wash out the faces entirely or make it look like everyone was in the dark.
It was a wonderful show and the atmosphere was great. It kind of felt like over 100 people were in a living-room together. Attentive and ready listeners just enjoying a Friday night, what a treat.
