Those are great! What were your settings on and what kind of camera and lensedid you use? The reason I'm asking is I want to do some photo's of my girls ballet class. I love the way you captured the images. Did you use a flash?



Good job!

Yes, let us know plz!

The color scheme (wall, clothes etc) is just beautiful. Don't know if it was luck or planned, but its a stunning palette.I also love the glasses, nice work on however you eliminated glare. So many photogs would just ditch the glasses, but theytruly add to the charm of the shot.

Looks like a Kodak ad Nice work.

Thank you Urbanaries,

for your kind comments. The glare was just luck, the settings on the original shot are S7K, 7.8mm, no flash, 1/5, f8, ISO 200 with a tri-pod. Most of the magic happened in PSP9...crop and gaussin blur the hard shadow line created by thevending machine. I also dodge around the models faces. The theme for the photo was communication and my title "Secrets".

The original out of the cam only resized for your comparison.

Very nice work. The first shot is nice and intimate. The second is very dynamic.
