Comment:   Photographing a fashion show is even more challenging than an ice hockey game. The overall light levels are low, but the spot lights on the models are high. A 150mm+ telephoto lens is required (more camera shake) and the models are moving most of the time. So a relatively high shutter speed is required (around 1/250 sec) and a high ISO (1600). Spot metering is required centred on the models face and the shutter speed needs to be constantly changed to match the changing light as the model moves. Fortunately the models are trained to move at a constant speed and are always in approximately  the same positions. So once one learns to pan, anticpate movement, and avoid distracting backgrounds, better shots are produced. My early ones were rubbish. But once I switched to a 70-200mm lens, and learned to pan properly, I eventually produced some half decent shots. I used Nik Dfine 2.0 to reduce the 1600 ISO noise.
