Blog #136 Shooting “Sports” [Colour]

In the last blog post, I listed recommendations for a successful shoot or event.  There were items the need attention relating to gear and to you the photographer. Photography is physical.  This is the premise that I started with and it is, indeed, physical.  

Preparation for a friend’s birthday party, travel, a theatre event, or just an afternoon of street photography around town with a friend all requires a bit of thought and preparation for proper execution.  

 

Images included in that blog were from a Winter Showcase event hosted by Fierce Fitness and Dance along with a few other pole and hoop dance groups.  The event was in Ping Ping 126 bar in Sai Big Pun and made from some difficult shooting conditions.  It was a really cramped space and the lighting was straight down (rather than on the subjects) and all over the place.  

 

Nevertheless, when the world gives you lemons, make lemonade. In spite of the dreadful conditions (for image making, I mean, otherwise it was lovely), I was expected to produce high quality images and fast! These girls can move really fast and the event was the photographic equivalent of shooting race cars at night.  Your flash is your friend. Know how to use it accordingly. 

 

Last week I included a selection of black and white images of this event.  This week, I’ve included some colourful versions just in time for Christmas. 

 

Happy Holidays & Happy New Year! 🎄 ✡️☪️✝️
