I arrived at the Company Ballet School studio a few minutes early to do an advance for their holiday production of the Nutcracker and found the students getting reading in the basement. I like the layers in this photo that lead you to the girl posing in the background. Firing off one frame to check my exposure, I could see my auto balance setting was not going to cut it. I kicked it over to the fluorescent setting and it cleaned up real nice. I shot at 2000 ISO, which was unheard of with cameras  just a few years ago. Nikon D700, Nikkor 24-120mm f/4
