Color, Light & Motion

I have learned that in the world of theater dance photography that no matter what you do the conflux of motion and lighting are sometime inescapable. My initial reaction months ago on my first shoot was one of disappointment. Many of my images were blurry beyond recognition and to make it worse yet it usually was a particular part of the presentation that was phenomenal... but now a lost moment. In speaking with David Hou, a recognized dance photographer I might want to look at these as happy accidents. The flow of color and light and motion create a whole new piece of art. These images are from the spring Ballet Creole presentation captured on April 16th. The first one was a result of a 12 second exposure because the cameras ISO was set so low. If you look closely you can see at least 14 steps to the dance movement!
