PHOTO OF THE QUARTER - Apr,May,Jun


The beauty of dance
by Nightjar :thumbup:

This from Mike:
This picture was taken in a studio with professional lighting. In order to make a success of this type of photography you need to know something about dance moves. Because of the inherent delay using Digital SLRs you need to anticipate the moment to release the shutter to capture the shot. And because you are using flash lights, you cannot use continuous shooting. But above all, the credit must go to the dancer who has trained professionally over many years to produce a magnificent performance like this.

  



CONGRATULATIONS Mike!

Hi Everyone, thank you all for selecting my picture for the POTQ award. This was taken in a studio using a professional ballerina. The secret is getting the timing right as FPS shooting with lights does not work. Thanks, again.
