Louisa is a very quiet girl and it was not easy to get her with a smiling, open, extrovert expression. But like Fiona, also Louisa still has the proportions of a baby, really, but - she is in ballet school already :D.

Love #5 of this series, the lighting looks more natural here and her expression is great. Louisa reminds me a bit of my Evelyn, very serious unless she knows you well ;)

I just love your series. Our young daughter (in the Avatar) is also takes dance lessons on Saturdays and parents are encouraged to attend and take photos. However flash tends to distract the kids, that is where a fast 85mm 1.4 really shines. A newer zoom with the motor in the lens also helps in keeping up with the action.

The "natural" light, Alison, which looks as if the sun was shining in through the window, is actually the light from that halogen work lamp that I brought.

It helped a lot in giving the hair of those girls a glow (using my on-camera flash to fill in the shadows in their faces) who I must not show you. Grrr. I would have loved to show you those face-shots of the other girls. They were ALSO so cute.

Yes, in 5 she for once has a hint of a smile and an open face, but truth is that 5 is a tad blurred. Not so much that the parents won't order the print (they will :biggrin: ) but ... I found that out when the pic loaded onto the computer. Much to my dismay.

I feel that Photo 3 reveals quite a bit of Louisa's character.
But then I also like the open look from that far below she gives the teacher upon saying the formal bye-bye ;).

Something like this, Sebastian?

The parents have already ordered the photos as they saw them (wrong white balance and all) - they never see their little girls in class, only when they were brandnew and still a bit timid could the mommies sit in the corner and watch, but after that ... So they are over the moon with the pics. Few see things such as wrong white balance and all, and take the light situation in that room as "normal". Oh well... I could have gone somewhat more "artistic", but I was sure it would not be honoured.
