Added one photo of me dancing; one of the two tangueras who honored me with their company dancing that same night; plus one of moi acting silly at work, at the Fine Arts Library, Cornell. :)

Must take photos every night until I get some really good ones! Last night I realized that I wasn't clearing the memory of my digital camera often enough, and so I had to stop taking photos and manually delete some. :( From now on I am wiping out the memory the day after every dance.

I just added a few extra shots from the Yankee Classic (from back in June, in Boston) and will be starting to add some USDSC photos shortly... hope everyone enjoys!

Some very vibrant colours SD :notworth: :D
LOL... thanks Pacion, but they're the ones who choose what colors their costumes are! :wink: :lol:
:doh: :doh: :doh: (c) SDSalsaguy aka SD :lol: vibrant colours of the photos not the costumes! Admittedly my salsa photos are taken in a dark environment but the colours don't hit me in the eye like the ones in yours :wink:

It's all about the flash! :wink:

Seriously though, when I first started trying to snap ballroom photos (a little over two years ago), I didn't get close to what I do now. Obviously the biggest difference has been my learning my craft but, beyond that, upgrading my flash helped a lot. Obviously the flash doesn't compose or take the pictures, but having a powerful flash with a quick recycle lets me shoot faster without missing too many shots. If there's something in front of me I can get it and have a full flash recharge pronto and, if there's something further away, the flash is still powerful enough to reach it.

I take the shots – and ultimately could take the same ones with lesser equipment – but having better tools certainly does make it faster and easier to capture what I'm trying to.

[P.S. We could always talk about this more in the Photo Forums... hint, hint, hint! :wink: ]
