dance series 1of 2


dance, originally uploaded by shivahuja.

the first in a 2 shot series of indian classical dances,
my school is gearing up for its founders day and an elaborate show has been put up with an orchestra,classical dances,choir performances and an art exhibition...(7 of my prints have been selected for it...!!) and i'm getting the founders day prize of exellence in instrumental music...!! woohooo...!! haha..

this was taken during one of the rehersals.....
taking photographs in the auditorium was a great challenge...low light sitiuations,large distances,so if i used my telephoto it would blur.....it was almost impossible to shoot handheld....borrowed a monopod from a friend which let me get down 2 stops.....but still at iso 200 it was still a challenge,
low light photography is something i would love to learn a lot about,hoping you guys can help me out here....

and also,it seems like laurie is the only one taking the time to comment,her comments really help me get better.....
if you visit please take the time to comment it'l really help.....
thanks.....

low light is still one area i have failed to master especially since i dont like mono or tripods...hopefully getting a new cam will change all of that..

this is great, absolutely amazing...perfectly composed and the toning works...

Awww...your're sweet to notice!

I love this shot!!! It's got the perfect DOF and the focus on her face is just perfect as well.

What instrument(s) do you play? 2 of my boys play. My middle son plays the piano, bassoon and to a lesser degree the flute (he hasn't picked up the flute in a long time). My youngest plays the violin and viola, he's planning to be a music major. The middle one isn't sure yet but he'd better make up his mind pretty soon he is a Junior.

I love to hear about young people being involved in creative endeavors especially music. It's such an important part of our lives in my house.
