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. :) ...

Re: New Orleans, LA, USA

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...

Another Nut Job

Hi Y’all! I’ve been enjoying everyone’s photos. :D I wish that I had more time to participate. :( Every year during Nutcracker season, the St. Louis Ballet has luncheons (in the theater lobby) for children before the weekend matinee Nutcracker shows. The kids get to meet the dancers in costume, and ...

Muttcracker photo shoot video

Greetings!

Here's a short behind the scenes video of a photo shoot of Dancers and Dogs for the Stray Rescue of St. Louis.
(I didn't make it into the video, but my Mouse King costume of 25 years did. :) )

Silk Stockings (dance scene)

Old classic dance scenes sometimes get dubbed over with modern recordings of music.
Some are good.
Some are bad.
This one I like. :)

Someone in the costume department knew how to cut Cyd's skirt. And Cyd knew how to use it.

Re: Photos with evidence of the photographer

Thanks!... and... The girls look immune to your being around and observing them for the most intriguing or unique moments… but I'm not so sure about being likened to chimpanzees, gorillas or orangutans. :D :D Oh my. I just re-read my original comment. Yes, it would appear that I implicated only the ...

Re: Photos with evidence of the photographer

After many years of spending time among the dancers, they’ve grown to accept me and my camera, allowing me to get close enough to observe and document their normal behaviors within their natural habitats without threats to my personal safety. :shock: It’s like I’m Jane Goodall… or something.

Re: Photos with evidence of the photographer

Thanks Henry! Yildiz... nice observation. I didn’t realize it until you mentioned it. My body position is really close to effacé. I should have pointed my front foot, turned out my standing leg, and inclined my head before taking the shot. That would’ve been cool. :D I'll remember that next time. Di...

I think it’s a shame that it’s been discontinued, now that there are digital cameras with good high ISO performance that will enable you to get a faster shutter speed and use it handheld in lo...
