Luau in low light

If you ever visit Hawaii, take an evening and enjoy a luau. It’s a pleasant way to get a quick introduction into cultural icons of Hawaii and Polynesia.

Earlier this week I attended the Paradise Cove Luau – Hawaii’s Best Luau. It’s next to the Ko Olina Resort on the Waianae side of Oahu. I can’t speak to it being the best since the only other Luau I’ve gone to is at the Hale Koa. The food and entertainment was good but it doesn’t have the additional activities of Paradise Cove.

One entertainment item Luau’s have in common is the fire-knife dancer. It’s a challenging subject for low light photos. I shot this hand held at ISO 3200 at 1/25 sec and f/ 7.1 with my AF 28-300 3.5-6.3 IF Sigma lens.

This image caught my eye because if you look closely just below the dancer you can see others working on their low light photography too.
