Ballerinas in blue light

Ballet dancers from Boca BalletDancers-7

Photographic events and performances such as this one from Boca Ballet are always very challenging to photograph. If you're sitting in an audience most likely you won't be able to set up a tripod and hand-held captures with long focal lengths won't work. Also, the frontal perspective could produce rather dull compositions. In this instance I decided to be more adventurous in order to gain a better vantage point. Since this was an outdoor amphitheater with informal sitting I was able to work my way discretely up to the stage from the side. There were lots of children dancing around in the grass under the stage drawing attention away from me as I propped my camera on the actual stage. This way I found enough stability to take hand-held shots. I was able to play around with the length of exposures in order to achieve very fluid blurring with enough areas of focus to cement the images. In this image the exposure was 0.5sec at f22. From my series Dancers.
