... From October to December 2012, I mainly „hit” the camera in studios and dress-rehearsals in theatres.At these situations I mostly shot at higher ISO sensitivity and used a Canon EF 70 mm f/2,8 L USM lens. ...

... The second one shows a tennis player figure: Tracking themes continuously the way when any contrasted obstacles get into the foreground or background it does not jump off the theme but follows it primarily.It is worth using when we photograph a certain person for example in contemporary dance photography or animal photography and we do not want the focus point to jump to another moving theme which might appear between the theme and the camera.. ...
