Meghan's dance troupe (now called Raqs Awn) gave me the opportunity to test my newest lens
last Friday night. Bellydance photography is probably one of the tougher shooting situations, combining as it does stage lighting (which tends to be uneven and colored), dimness and motion. I shot at F/2.8 and ISO 3200 (ouch) to avoid having to use the flash and tried my best to clean up the digital noise in Photoshop later. They won't win any awards, but they came out well enough that I think the troupe will like them.
