    Default Need advice for shooting a concert at Singapore Conference Hall

    I'll be shooting a school band concert at SCH (Shenton Way) soon. Anyone shot there before? How's the lighting condition and what focal lengths are useful?

    you will need a WA to capture the whole band as well. so bring both lenses.
    And a flash for back stage shots.
    my guess is that you will need fast lens, fast ISO and steady hands (or monopod/tripod)

    lighting is quite good when using ISO 800.... bright lenses would be good.

    wide angle lens (20mm maximum) is needed for shots of the entire stage

    I think you'll are probably taking the picture during their full dress rehearsal, and not during the actual day right ? In that case, you'll probably have lots of time to play around with the setting, etc because the rehearsal will probably last the whole day.


    This is a picture of my friend performing at SCH last december.


    EXIT Info:
    Exposure time - 1/50 s
    F-number - 3.5
    Exposure program - Aperture priority
    ISO speed ratings - 400
    Flash - Flash did not fire [off]
    Focal length in 35mm film - 380 mm
