Saturday night we decided to check out The Reveal 2014, by Platinum Dance Studio in Monroe. This is where Evie takes her ballet classes. The Reveal is the showcase for the competition dancers, and might be something in Evie’s future. We always have a blast at Evie’s recital, so this seemed like a great way to support the dancers and the studio.
Unfortunately, they had a no cell phone camera rule in the auditorium, but I was able to take a few shots before things got started just to see how things looked through the eye of my Nokia Lumia 925. The low light capabilities of this phone still blow me away. Here were are in a pretty dark room, shooting downward and I still have an almost perfect color balance and bright image.
Here is a close up of the image above with a focus on the image printed on the program. You can clearly see that the PureView camera is remarkably clean in lower light scenarios. The contrast could be slightly better, but the image itself on the program was far from great. Overall, the camera performed amazing in the low light conditions.
Just for giggles, I flipped the camera to the front facing one and snapped a shot of us before the show started. Of course the kids wouldn’t pose with us, but the front cam did a great job of getting us before the lights went dark and the show started.
I wish I could have taken a few shots during the show with the camera, but I wanted to respect the rules and not do that. Plus, I really just wanted to enjoy the show. The dancers were amazing and, for the most part, the kids enjoyed the show. Only 5 months until The Showcase where Evie will have 2 performances this year! Can’t wait to see them!
