Dance Photo

Happy Friday!! It's the weekend!! Woo Hoo!!

I was asked to take the photo of a Dance Team, but it was an unusual request. Their dance takes place in a pool, so they wanted their photo inside a small kiddie pool. There was no place to put up lights, so I had to use natural light for the photo. I used to think putting the group into the sun was the best thing when using natural light, but I have learned over the years that using the sun is a bad idea...too many shadows to contend with, and harsh light...so, I set up the pool in the shade where the light is even and there were no shadows to deal with...I got up on a ladder, and shot downward with my 18mm lens. I then added some texture to the photo to cover up the plain, boring floor around the pool and to add some color...then of course, masked out the dancers...but I left in some texture on the pool...

Have a great weekend, and I will see you back here on Monday!
