Default "Fun With The Hip Hop Class"

It's recital season again at my girlfriends dance studio! (yes she owns the studio...1st photo, the girl in the front with her arms crossed) I take the portraits and recital photos for her studio. I decided to get the hip hop class together after dark tonight an take some photos in the alley behind the studio. I used my Nikon D90, 50mm 1.8, 2 SB600s and 1 SB700. Both of these shots were at ISO200 with the SB600s on each side just in front of the group to get the shadows in the background and the SB700 on camera as the master flash and to light from the front...1st photo was at f2.8, 1/5sec, the 2nd at f2.8, 1/6sec...

Great idea, and pretty well executed. In case you get to revisit this a couple of tweaks could be done.

1st photo, the girl in black, front left as we look at the shot, with her square on it is making her look very broad, if she was alone it would look broader than needed, with the group all pretty much at an angle she stands out even more so not overly flattering.

In the 2nd the girl far left as we look, she just isn't comfortable. With the majority crouched down the two standing are just a bit too high, nothing wrong with levels, actually they are really helpful, just a bit too much here.

Having said that, they do work well all together, it's good that there is a level of symmetry but most importantly they are all posed differently with hands/arms in different places. Nothing worse than a boring photo with everyone doing the same thing..... I should know, I do it enough at weddings.

In that case you did an even better job. Looks like you could really get into this side of things.
