NSFW: Montreal Mode and Design Festival: Lingerie show

Sorry for this NSFW (Not Safe For Work) post, but I think it is worth it!

Last night, I was at the final event of the Montreal Design and Fashion week in Montreal. Of course, I totally forgot about the event until it was too late to secure a press pass so I had to shoot from the crowd. It would not have been that bad if it was not of all the idiots people trying to take pictures with their cellular phones. Because of these, and an asian with a super saiyan hair cut right in front of me, I had to reject about 25% of my shots.  Still, I got enough shots to create a small clip for all my friends who could not make it with me that nigh (you know who you are!). Download the original file from Vimeo, the pictures are much sharper.

From a technical point of view: these shots were taken with my 70-200f4IS in AV mode set to 200mm, F4 and ISO 800. In retrospect, I should have shot at 1200-1600 to freeze more action. These girls were fast! If I had to redo this, I would use a 135L2 and do some cropping in post production. The 200mm was a bit too long and I had to cut too many pretty elbows.

Note: the half naked guy singing is Plastik Patrik. Quite a character with awesome stage presence!

    is there a reason most of them are out of focus?

      Look at the original clip in Vimeo. I dont know why, but Vimeo compression really messed up the stills. I think it is because the delay between keyframes is longer than the duration of each frame. Of all the pictures I put in the clip, only 2-3 were kinda soft, all the others were anything from super sharp to acceptable.
