Circus Vargas 2013

Went to check out Circus Vargas at the Irvine Spectrum this Saturday, bought a front row seat ahead of time so I could get a really good spot. The whole show was a lot of fun, I really loved all the acts they had, especially the new magic acts with disappearing/reappearing people.

Shooting was a bit of a challenge because of the constantly changing lighting. I was initially going to use my 50mm f/1.4 but I switched to the 24-105mm f/4, even though I sacrificed a couple aperture stops. That meant I had to work with a slightly slower shutter speed and higher ISOs, but sitting this close I needed a wider angle to be able to capture some of the larger acts.

Camera: Canon 6D with 24-105mm f/4L IS
