Last week, we shot Dance School. This image is not from that session.
Seven days of hundreds of little girls in tap shoes, tap tap tapping me into submission.
Seven days of networking and Wi-Fi problems.
Seven days of long, long hours.
Seven days of mayhem.
I do enjoy it. I enjoy coming up with new poses, and trying to get the difficult action shots. The people are nice, the owner of the dance studio is wonderful, and the smiles and squeals of the girls seeing their images is well worth it.
But I have to say I’m a little tired of the fake smiles caused by all the people saying: “Say cheese! Smile for the camera! Show your teeth! Saaaay, Pizza!”
Yes, I know some of the kids need this prompting. But sometimes, you just gotta shoot the photo without a smile.
Yes, it was fun. But shots like this are what I really love.
