    I'm trying to make more portrait attempts. Yesterday I was in a BatSheva Dance Company performance event so I got a chance to do so.

    Thanks for viewing.

    Interesting! There are a couple of instances here where the shadows or the dancer's movements get in the way of their faces, but the first and third images work very well. :)

    In fact, the first image, though dark, is absolutely beautiful. :thumbup:

    Thanks, Terri. Sounds encouraging. :) I wished the shots could have been sharper. Although under similar lightning conditions, this demands a really good capable camera. Other than that, do you have extra tips? I'm interested in seeing "starker" images than what I got now.

    I just sorted out an additional one. Was it better than earlier ones?

    Thanks.

    I like the color version of this last one. It's more obvious that he's onstage with the bright prop there. :thumbup:

    You might could try lightening that first one (just a little) and/or bumping up the contrast so he isn't so gray. I think it might work well as a vertical, too. Not too closely cropped, just enough to become vertical. ;)
