Default My boys dancing...

Hello everyone!

Just came home with my boys from the dance school....first try and they loved it!! But what is a dance without a photographer Well, couldn't let them dance without taking some pictures right!?!?!

But since I was quite certain the other children aren't as "natural" to cameras as my kids, I was hiding the camera and just took it out "at specific times". very fast without anyone noticing...kinda sneaky actually

I was forced to use my manual ricoh lens, so the images aren't razorsharp (because of the manual focus, fast moving kids and low light !!) but they came out pretty nice anyway...

The images are iso1600, f/2.8, shutterspeed 1/100, which was a little to slow...maybe should have bumped iso to 2500 and have 1/150 or similar) very well here are two samples ..

Focus looks very good with these two. I like the feeling of movement in the second one, the (relatively) slow shutter speed actually adds to the pictures. The one thing I would do is rotate them to correct the lean of the wood paneling. I can't seem to hold a camera square so I'm especially sensitive to it (I have to correct almost all of my pictures!).

Agree with Harriet, Michael. Just need to straighten these - easily done.

Great kids, great photos, and great dad for taking the boys there and staying to enjoy the "show!" 2nd one especially nice for the balance and action! They do look a bit better straightened...
