Dance Fest 2008 - Conclusion

More funky light trails

After the girl flew yesterday, the next dance took me by surprise. The whole hall went dark and I went "uh oh". At least I had the stage lights previously, but this is complete darkness.

Out came coloured flash lights and the dance begun. And what you see above is my attempt to at least show some elements of that dance.

Light trails

Switched to slow shutter, and then realised that my camera can't AF in the dark :P So had to switch to MF and pray that some pictures will turn out at least "artistically" alright :P

In line

And then, there was light! And we could see the performers. I breathed a sigh of relief. Any more of that dark stuff and I'll be scratching my head what to do next. Some photographers were using flash and I wonder how that turned out.

Final pose

And so, tada! And we have reached the end of Dance Fest 2008. It was fun covering the event and I think it has been my longest series here :P

I will be going away to Bali and be back on Tuesday so this blog will be quiet. So, don't miss me yah! :P
