Carols at St Marys and ISO at 2000

Attended a Christmas Carol service at St Marys Church in Stretton, and me being me I took my camera for some low light photography. Knowing that I was taking hand held pictures in low light situation I opened up my latest lens acquisition, a Canon 17 - 40mm EF L, to it's largest aperture of f/4.0  and upped the ISO to 2000 to try and achieve a reasonably hight shutter speed as I possibly could, Luckily it was a full moon....

Here are some images, edited for white balance and some crop.

  1. Hi Jimbo
    I'm just re reading all the Scott Kelby books, which mean alot more to me now, he suggests using a 50ml fast portrait lens for low light/church shots. Mine is a Nikkor f1.8 and was very reasonable. I've yet to give it a go.

  2. Thanks Pip, yes I have used a Canon 50mm f/1,8 and it's very good, this time though I wanted to get in close and wide.
