Two girls dancing. They gave quite a performance, i wasn't expecting this when I first saw them.

#1 - At first an "action" shot.

#2 - a more quiet moment of concentration before they started the next sequence.

Excellent candid shots. Are the girls related to you (or to each other, as far as that goes!)

Wow Cal, you are quick to respond!

No, they aren't related to me and afaik they aren't related to each other either. They are just friends and dance-partners.

Lighting was :?when I took these with a lot of backlight coming from the windows and I am not good with flash - so these are without flash. I used a 50mm f/1.7 lens stopped down to f/2 mostly.

Thanks for the nice comment,
Th.

I really like the composition of #2. Also a much better exposure. The first shot is a bit underexposed. As you indicated this is likely caused by the backlighting. Also, shot 1 would have benefited again from a portrait orientation getting the legs in the frame. Dancing is so much about the foot work it looks a bit odd to not have the legs in the frame.

But #2 is a very nice looking shot - well framed and executed.

@JohnG

Thanks for commenting these images. About including the feet and legs for dancers... yes... good point. I had no chance of framing and stuff at that performance, I was just sitting in my corner and tried to snap away as I was just part of the audience. Anyway - I think you are very right here, I've got some other shots WITH legs and will pick some and post :idea:- lets see what people have to say about these.

#2 is really one of my favourites, too.

Happy snapping,
Th.

Nice shots, Th. Lots of ways to play.

Guess I'll have to get my camera and myself out shooting.
