The annual Medieval Festival (Hämeen keskiaikafestivaali) was held last month in Hämeenlinna, Finland. I was there taking pictures last year by myself but this time my wife came along and we decided to go and see the main event (at least for us) in the evening instead of the daytime show. Even though the evening show was much more challenging to photograph I did prefer it over the daytime version mainly due to the atmosphere the fire and lighting conjured.

I think 95% of the photos were taken with ISO3200 or higher (most of them being 6400) which meant noise would be present. To be honest though, I was surprised to see the photos turned out to be cleaner than expected - even with the excessive cropping I did. Sure, 1-2EVs cleaner photos would be welcome but if that meant increasing my kit weight, then I'm still saying: "No, thanks!" :)

If you want to read (remember to scroll down for the English version) more about the event and the gear I used, you may do that on this blog post: https://teemup.net/blog/hameen-keskiaikafestivaali-2020/

But if you couldn't care less about reading and seeing more photos, here's something to look at right now:

Again a great series. It's impressive how intensively you capture the atmosphere, Teemu. :2thumbs:

These are so dramatic. It looks like it was a dark venue, and you had to shoot at high ISO.
Yep. Really dark. They did have small flames here and there and a few spotlights but as you can see, it was "challenging". But I think my E-M5III did surprisingly well. :)
