    Handheld 1/8 sec photo taken at f10 (ISO 1600 - cleaned by NeatImage) during the International Folklore Festival in Scheessel last Saturday night

    [​IMG]

    When I realised that the "normal" shutter speed (at a wide open aperture) of 1/30 would always give me motion blur with these dancers, I tried to make use of the blur and stopped down this much ... what do you say about the outcome?

    Edited to add edited version of the photo:

    Very nice idea. Could only be better if you could see the head properly.

    Oh my stars! What an unusal idea. At first glance (and a sudden one at that) I thought it was a flower. Then when my eyes settled down I realized it was a lady dancing. Nice job!

    You are right, though this is, indeed, the best of the lot, for in this one she did hold her head still enough for those 1/8th of a second to shine through the whoosh of her dress ... she did not in any of the others. So I was quite happy about this one, I must admit.

    And if you are curious to see more of her, here is a 1/30-second exposure of her and partner:

    And a telephoto portrait shot taken on the show of the following afternoon (Sunday, 22 July)

    Have I made you curious to see more pics from the occasion? ;)

    Oh cool :D!

    Well, first of all I found out that someone else produced a video clip of the event (mostly so of the parade through the streets of Scheessel early on Sunday afternoon) which can be watched here ... it is a 6 minute-video, as pixelated as uploaded videos have to be, but towards the end you can even see "my" Venezuelan dancer.

    This is the videographer at work :)biggrin: --- I took so many photos of the photographers and this one of this videographer during the event :lol: )

    And just to stay with the title of THIS very thread, yet another Venezuelan dancer in midst of her fast dancing, also taken on Saturday night with the available stage lights:

    [​IMG]

    There were many, many different groups and very many pretty girls among the dancers, not only from Venezuela, but also from Romania, Mallorca (Spain), Taiwan (they were children...), Poland, USA (well, those dancers were not quite as young any more) and several German groups, too.

    Just in case someone is interested, I might put together a portrait thread.

    That is, I think, thanks to the stage lights. I did not add to them. Plus their dresses really ARE very colourful.
