Shooting Entertainment

I wasn't able to bring the big camera so I shot the following with a point and shoot.
Due to image noise problem, exif data were lost after filtering.

Several things to keep in mind when shooting stage performances:

Watch for the light.
Constantly changing lighting effects can make or break your photo. If it momentarily
goes out, your photo is underexposed. If the light hits your lens, it burns the photo. If too much
hits the subject, it overexposes the photo. But if you timed it right, it adds up to make an interesting picture.

Look for interesting background on stage.
If the backdrop is interesting, you can use it to add interest to the photo.

Get close to the action
If at all possible, get near or up the stage, snap, then get out fast so as not to be distracting.

Watch the action
Entertainers normally do something fancy. They jump, twist, spin, grind etc.
Focus ahead of time, keep your finger on the shutter release button,
keep one eye on the viewfinder. Open both eyes and watch the show while tracking the subject.
When they make the move ... click!
