UTA ASO Coming To Africa 2015 / by Nolita Ihama

Told you next time would be sooner than you thought ;)

So today was just a CRAZY day for me because after shooting Khadijah in the afternoon, i slept for an hour and then doubled up to shoot Utarlington ASO's Coming to Africa. This was actually my first time shooting a "theater style" event and I was not really sure what to expect, so I went a little crazy and brought all of my lenses with me. I used a 50mm f/1.4 to shoot the beginning "prequel" images, then switched to a 70-200mm f/2 to shoot all of the show. This lense is just amazing. Seriously amazing. All of the images I captured made it seem like I must have been sitting in the front row near the stage when I was really towards the back, and in the aisles. The only downside to this lense is that it is HEAVY. Already being tired from earlier, I felt like my arms were about to fall off! But the images came out great and I really loved the detail of how you can even see some of the dust on the stage, now that is sharp! The last lense I used was a 35mm f/1.4 and for some reason I'm not too much of a fan of this lense for the graduation shoots I've been doing, but it worked well for shooting people who wanted shots of themselves after the show. Here is a gallery of some of the show, but you should definitely check out this link to the events page to see more!
