On and Off Stage Antics

THIS!... is my all time favorite scene of any movie ever! It sums up life off and on stage rather well. I can tell you for sure that all of us stage performers get really bored with doing the same show night after night after night after night after night after night. So, we come up with little thin...

Re: DC by Night

JT,
The first one and the last one are my favorites. Sweeping curves always get me. :)

George,
I’m going to have to spend some time looking through your galleries. So far, so good!

Re: Death Valley, California

Sury,

Of your 3 photos, I like the second shot the best. :D That landscape seems conducive to panoramas.
I like the website that you posted too.

Re: Dancers in the Dark - St. Louis Ballet (A7III high ISO)

Thanks Sury, JT, & Valery! JT, when I’m shooting from backstage my hit/miss ratio is about 1 out of 12. Just FYI about being backstage… There is always something going on that I have to look out for (I give everyone else the right of way, and top priority over my photography). There are dancers ...

Re: Dancers in the Dark - St. Louis Ballet (A7III high ISO)

Thanks Yildiz! I hope that I’m with the St. Louis Ballet long enough to enjoy taking a few more of these types of shots. It’s almost time for me to bow-out from the stage. Maybe they’ll keep me around for a few more years. A lot of ballets have “old man” roles. LOL! JT, I don’t see any difference in...

Re: Dancers in the Dark - St. Louis Ballet (A7III high ISO)

Thanks Sury, JT, & Valery! JT, for normal everyday photography, I usually pair the A7 with several small Minolta prime lenses that I have (24, 50, 135). They look and feel perfectly at home with the camera and adapter. A newer large prime like the 85 ZA is borderline. It's only when I attach the...

Re: New Orleans, LA, USA

Hi Sury! All good stuff! My favorite croc-shot is the one with the angle looking down where the area outlining its head is plain dark water. To me, the plainness of the water not only emphasizes the texture of the croc’s skin but also the importance of the subject. Love it! I think that you hit the ...

Dancers in the Dark - St. Louis Ballet (A7III high ISO)

Hi Y’all! First, I would like to say that I am quite happy with my A99. :D However, I recently upgraded to the A7III solely for the added ability of 4K video recording. From time to time, I help a friend with his videography business, and he recently upgraded to several 4K JVC cinema video cameras. ...

Re: New Orleans, LA, USA

Sig, is this what you had in mind or more sepia/aged look? Yes, that is exactly what I was thinking. Thank you! I've been sitting here and admiring that photo for some time now. It seems to take me back to another time. :) I also like the close up of the croc/gator quietly sitting in the water. :) ...

NOLA! Cafe Beignet! Crawfish! errr... uhh... On second thought, let's skip the crawfish. Maybe some shrimp gumbo instead? :) The rrrraa-ca-ca-coon is cute! I hope that it knows about the alligators. That draw bridge is pretty cool too. That's a photo that if it were in black and white, it could easi...

Re: Another Nut Job

Thank you again, Yildiz! Yes, it was fun to do, and yes, it's fun to see how some of the children dress for the occasion. I’m glad that you enjoyed the photos. :) Sury, thanks for your enthusiasm! I could probably go on for a while longer, but I don't want to burn out everyone on luncheon photos. As...

Re: Another Nut Job

Thanks Valery, Sury, & Yildiz! Yes, Yildiz... the emotions of the children and the dancers as they interact with each other are what I strive to get. I'm glad to know that it comes across in the photos. The dancers are always glad to see the children enjoying themselves. However, sometimes the p...
