Prime Minister of Turkey, Reccep Erdogan giving a speech during a plant opening in Bursa.

I was invited by my company to the opening ceremony of our new assembly line last week end. The high time of the afternoon was a speech delivered by the Prime minister. Of course, I brought my camera there and I was surrounded by tenth of journalists and photographers. There was also bodyguards and security guys with dogs everywhere as required by the situation. Security did not allow people to move around during speeches so I take pics mainly from my seat with long zoom... and fortunately I had a good seat.

It was difficult to take crisp pictures there. I did not dare to bring my flash (most of the pros did, so I would be more ambitious next time) and the light condition was very low. So it forced me to use high Iso and low shutter speed or... to rely on other photographers flash light (5% of my shot are with others flash pops) as all the press was taking pics frantically. However I was very glad to have this excellent stabilized 70-200 lens of mine that saved some of my shots (as this one). I took mainly some short burst of pics to increase chances to get clear pic. But any motion scene, such as PM arrival, ended only in blur results

until next time...
