This is my third year photographing this annual holiday presentation of the Soulful Messiah, performed by Ballet Creole. It was one of the first staged dance pieces I ever photographed and each and every time the images have improved in composition and quality. This represents some of my best stage photography yet and I feel that I have matured with my dance work. With this shoot I pushed myself furthur into the dance to get up close verses the furthur back whole stage approach in previous shoots. I found it harder to cover all of the action but fortunately during rehearsals many sections are performed more than once and I took the opportunity to capture different portions. I feel very blessed to have garnered the performance poster for this show for a second year, the first time was for the 2008 season!
Much thanks to the Ballet Creole folks and Brad who expertly lights each and every performance!
