I have heard a lot of French words this weekend all in connection with Ballet. Those who are involved have whole conversations concerned around the instructions for how and what to dance!
This afternoon I had the pleasure of watching and photographing some extremely talented young adults in the English Ballet. Their skill, emotional expression and strength is amazing. I had watched some videos this morning on dealing with low light situations to get best results. Following the guidelines and letting ISO go way up beyond what I would normally 'allow', I achieved much greater success. It will take a while to go through all the images taken and work on just a small selection. Challenging and fun.
Another fun day tomorrow on a workshop with Polina Plotnikova at the Amersham Studios - really looking forward to that.
