    Well.
    I really enjoyed the experience.

    It's really tough to take pictures in such an event... from 20:00 to 23:00 with a HUGE amount of shows and dancers... I didn't count them but could have been around 35 or 40...

    I arrived at home at 24:00 and didn`t have time to download the material but there are some solid shots.

    24-70 was just perfect as reach.
    It was a bit dark in certain situations because lighting, sometime, was really dim.
    On that point, the 85mm 1.8 would have serve me better, for the aperture and better transmission of light (I test both lenses at 2.8, same ISO and SS and the 24-70 it's pretty darker)

    It could be great to do some team working with another photographer... two D750 with 24 and 85 1.8... One do groups and the other single dancers.

    In another kind of show, with longer exhibitions (like classic dance), I would give a try to 2 D750 with 24 and 50 or 85 and shift bodies.
    In this case, with 40 3 or 4 minutes show, with no rest between shows, it would be insane.

    I tried not to over use bursts
    I decided to use Auto ISO and highlight spot metering considering that the lighting was similar to a rock concert. It Was changing too fast for manual adjustment.
    I'll have to work on this aspects:


    • Beeing in the first raw, the point of view was a bit too low and I often got too much scenario (the front - vertical part of it). I didn't want to point too upwards for distortion. The third raw would have been better but I would have been between parents and they where constantly going to the first raw to take (cel phone) pictures and they would have been into the shot. I was also able to move freely and change the angle.
    • I should have changed SS more often and go slower if needed.
    • I could have changing metering depending on lighting.


    I'll post some pics as soon as I edit them.
