Once again the local youth circus Sorin Sirkus had their annual Christmas show. This time the show was called Soilu.

Unfortunately the show was shorter than before due to COVID-19 times and eventually got canceled in mid-December too (it was supposed to run until the first weekend of January). I'm glad my wife & I picked a date that the show was still running and managed to see it. I think it got canceled 2 or 3 days after we saw the show so we were lucky.

So... I think I've always shot the show with my Oly 40-150mm f/2.8 but this time I wanted to shoot less and enjoy the much smaller Sigma 56mm f/1.4 prime lens instead. I don't think the lens could have performed any better. A couple of miss-focused photos did end up on the memory card but those were my fault. The only complaint I have is about the fabric they used to project special effects on. The fabric happened to be in between the stage and audience so you can imagine what that does to photographs...

Anyway, enough with the blabbering and on with the photos, eh...?

Really good work on those photos with the action caught at peak points!
Well made productions with great lighting sure make shooting easier. A fast sharp prime can do the job nicely. I shot with the EM5 and O45 1.8 at a U2 concert in 2015. Much easier to get in with a small kit and not be classified as a "professional" at least in some U.S. venues.

These are sensational, Teemu, you have a great eye for choosing an engaging composition and moment! I'm keen to buy that lens, but already have the O60 macro and am loath to duplicate the length with another. But you've shown its great strength in low light. Magnificent!

If you're not their official photographer, they should make you so!
Beautiful pictures!
Oh I would love that! :)

I've been chatting with one of the performers on Instagram and once the pandemic eases up a bit I will go and photograph some of them in action. Who knows what'll happen after that... ;)

Thank you - so kind of you! :cloud-9-039:
Yeah, the focal length of Sigma is very close to the O60mm but in the end, they have so different purposes that I don't think they actually compete against each other.
