Just need a little advice regarding this event that I've been invited to photograph. Would appreciate any help here.
Basically it's a dress rehearsal for a dance performance held in a studio. I have yet to check out the venue so I have no clue regarding the set-up of the stage. I will be granted full access to backstage and will have room to roam about. Given that it's a salsa dance performance, movements will be very fast and dramatic? Should I be renting a faster prime lens (like the 85mm/1.4 or 50mm/1.4) for the performance? (as i fear ending up with shaky shots due to low lighting) or will be current set-up of nikon D5000/tamron 90mm(2.8)/tamron 17-50(2.8) be sufficient in the shoot?
Also, what is the best camera settings for such conditions? manual focusing on shutter mode? I'm a bit paranoid now.
Could use a little help here!
