This shot is one I took with the Fuji X-T1 and 50-230 lens. That camera and lens combo isn't really suited for low light indoor action shots, but I bumped the ISO way up to 6400, kept the aperture all the way opened and set the shutter speed to 1/500 to help freeze the action a bit. I would've preferred 1/1000 shutter speed, but that made the resulting image really dark. I would've had to bump the ISO even higher to 12,800 and with the Fuji camera, it won't allow for raw at that ISO setting, only jpg. It worked pretty well at ISO 6400 even though it is a bit noisy. But the expression on this guy's face is fantastic so I can deal with the noise.
Can't wait to go to another one and then I can say, "This ain't my first...!" :-)
Oh and thanks for being a great host once again, Ellen!
