A couple of weeks ago my little 4yo girl had her very first ballet dance recital. The organisers said no photography allowed, however they would have so called "professional" photographers and videographers there to record the event. The wife told me it started at 5pm... but while on the way there she messaged me and told me she was wrong and it started at 4.30pm. So by the time I had got there at about 4.55 I had missed my girl dancing. No worries though, the pros were there with their D3S and 70-200 F2.8 VRII and 2x video cameras so I thought I would have a record of the event.
...but no, not a single still of my girl, not even in a group shot and about 0.5 of second of her visible in a wide shot of the stage in the video. Not impressed!
I am so tempted to turn up next year with my gear and tell them to PO!
