288th Show & Tell Competition: No-flash dance & party pictur

Post Thu Aug 01, 2013 3:08 pm


Hey everyone,

For this competition I'd like you to show me pictures of dancing people at parties. My sample pics were all taken at a wedding, but any occasion that allows people to dance and just have fun is ok, whether that is a private thing or a huge commercial dance event or a rock concert. I'm mostly looking for people having fun, smiles, movement, not-posing but just enjoying themselves amongst friends. So, crowd-shots, no DJ's or rockstars being awesome. Unless they are being awesome among the crowd. :) I like low-light situations because it makes taking good pictures an adventurous challenge that requires a lot of luck, but for the competition this should not be a deciding factor.

Special requirements:
- NO FLASH. I hate flash. Even if you're really good, it still looks like flash. So, again, NO FLASH. Use any light you have available (other cameras flashing at a lucky moment is fine).
- This also means that technical qualities like focus and sharpness aren't everything. Blur can show energy and movement, weird colors can enhance the emotional quality of a picture, unusual compositions can make a picture really interesting. If you end up with lots of noise because you have to set your ISO to 12800 that doesn't have to be a bad thing.
- Surprise and move me!

Good luck and have fun.

A little inspiration:
