So I have a new (to me) lens, a 28-200mm which is almost an all-in-one lens for me. But I've not had a chance to test it out under action circumstances.
All the pow wow shots are taken with the lens and I have to say I'm pleased with it.
I toned down the colours (can you tell?) on this shot in an attempt to bring out an "Old West" type of style.
You tell me whether it works or not.

I don't think the people in the ceremony were much paying attention to the photographers there, and that's just fine by me, makes for more candid work, but in this case I got the girl (I think) just as she was looking up.
Worked well in my opinion.
So I haven't updated things in a bit, I've been busy with work (boo!) but I did get a chance to get to an Indian (are there any other kind?) pow wow this weekend.
Got there just as the ceremony was getting underway. Got a great spot to shoot from, got my camera out and started taking pics.
Only to realize I'd brought a semi-dead battery and that all my settings in the camera were wrong for outdoors work.
Way to go e! Nonetheless I managed to rescue some of the pics with Lightroom and PhotoShop and are posting them here for your approval.
