Dance til you can't dance no more...

Back from another dance competition...Dance Unlimited. It went well. We continue to improve and impress each time.

Update from the girls:
The "boredom" was not as severe as in the past.

The "fighting" did not happen (thank goodness).

The teams performed rather well! I must say I was pleased.

Here is the rundown if you are so inclined to want details.

I feel a real sense of ownership when it comes to the studio. My only claim to it is as a blood relative. Most people don't realize that though, so it makes me feel even more attached.

I tried my hand at some action shots this go round. They are not great.

Here are a few I thought were interesting.

Yes I do know they really are bad pictures. I was "playing" with the settings on the camera to try to figure it out. I don't think I ever got there though. Just because you have access to a nice camera doesn't mean pictures will turn out great.
All of you who actually know how to use a camera, I could use some tips. Any info you can share would be helpful. I think I am decent at the close up face shot...I know I am improving there...proof is in the pudding. (see previous post) The action shot is a whole new ball game though (pun intentional).

"When I Grow Up"

"Kung Fu"

A soloist from our studio

"Speed Racer"

Post Script: Ally is in "Kung Fu" and "Jump Up"

I have no advice. I'm a crappy action-shot photographer too. I like your puddin' pics though, Clark has such a cutie face!
