    So we head off to a gym to attend a very good friends son's 3rd birthday. I think I'll drag along the camera to take a few snapshots of my daughter goofing around. To make a long story short, after play time a few of the older kids that attend the gym put on a little show. Talk about strength in a child, these kids Rocked.......My mouth still has not closed.
    Gym light, so very very very very bad, all shots taken 1000iso with 70-200 at 2.8. In processing them i can actually see the color shift in the lights...:frown: But still WOW. I cant wait for next time, I'll put my self in better position and steal a 85 1.4

    First off the birthday boy, well it was his party.:smile:



    They all wrapped them selves up and spun down for a dismount. Circ de Soleil here they come.

    Wow is right, it sure looks as though these kids had a fantastic experience. Some faster glass will help you handle the dim lighting and you'll bring home more wonderful images to cherish for a lifetime.
  3. They sure are amazing. And your shots aren't bad either! :wink:

    Thanks but they do not do the kids Justice, the first one that went i only grabbed one poor shot of. She was amazing, i have never seen someone so young do gymnastics so well. I was to busy going WOW, and oh s*** I'm in the wrong place to take shots. Glad you like them i cant wait to head back and take more.
