Nadya Johnson 3/3/2006 8:44:50 AM

Leanne!! Gorgeous!! Must ask, did you achieve this translucent glow via camera or with Photoshop??? I just love this shot! I have been attempting to "transparentize" (?) a certain image and so far, I am not satisfied with the results so I thought I'd ask.... this is four-star! #2491798

Leanne M.E. Boyd 3/3/2006 9:26:43 AM

Thankyou Nadya - this is an in camera technique, used to record movement. I use a slow camera speed, held the camera still, and shot the dancers movements. I was lucky in that there were banks of windows in front and back of me, that provided the wonderful light. #2491918

Dragan Milenkovic 3/3/2006 9:55:08 AM

Excellent knowledge of photo technique is only partly explanation of this photo. To make it you should have the feeling for energy of movement. Bravo #2491962

Leanne M.E. Boyd 3/3/2006 11:13:39 AM

You are right, Dragan - The spirit of the dance is the number one reason for taking the photo. This piece was a small portion of Swan lake, and I wanted to capture the feeling of flight and grace. Hopefully I have accomplish this. #2492182
