I was monumentally ticked at the photos I took at the recital. I simply didn’t have a lens that could open wider than F4. And where there is normally tons of stage light at a recital, Saturday there was barely any at all. It was truly frustrating. So I switched cameras and played with the BW feature on my Canon G9. The shot above is a product of that experimentation.
The dancers had just danced to the edge of the stage and threw hand fulls of glitter into the air. I think it made a very compelling effect, so thus it’s today’s photo.
I had the camera set to the “Wide” setting and I am not so sure that helped the image, but it didn’t hurt it either.
