Dance recital

This little lady had another dance performance on the weekend. Got all dressed up, make up done, for her 3 minutes of fame on stage.

I can't believe she doesn't have the slightest stage fright, whether it be in the classroom, or on stage. When I was her age, I'd be super nervous when doing anything in front of an audience.

I love her look of concentration on this shot, so serious, lol.

  7. She is absolutely beautiful!
    She really doesn't need that make-up.

    Kind wishes,

  9. Love the DOF on these shots! Did you use an ND filter?

  10. Thanks all :)

    Antonia, I'm not a big fan of the make-up either, but they asked the parents to put on make-up for the performance. Add to that, my wife just had to pick the brightest and reddest one they had.

    Wayne, yep, I used ND4, ND8, and a circular polarizer.

    Mastering the Chaos/pcphotography / Anonymous, I used a 85 1.4, mostly shot near wide open for shallow DOF.

    Jason, your photos are fantastic! Love your creativity. What was your light source? It looks like maybe a very large softbox? Looking forward to seeing more of your photos!

  30. Hi Blake, light source was a 50" soft box

  32. Jason, a friend introduced me to your blog a few days ago and I have spent the past two days reading all of your entries. This is such a moving tribute to your daughters. It has been so much fun watching them change.
    I have a new Grandson and you have inspired me to take more pictures, to mark the milestones and watch him change and grow. I am looking forward to seeing what you do next! Thank you so much!

  41. That's stage make-up... the purpose is to keep beautiful little girls from looking like ghosts onstage... even boys would need some make-up for that...
