I was recently very honored to have been asked to second shoot the Nutcracker Ballet Dress Rehearsals for “The Dance Theater of Pennsylvania”. This experience gave me a huge boost in confidence in my abilities and really broadened my experience and technical skills. In photography, as with many art forms, there will always be more to learn, but I’m very thankful for this particular opportunity to learn while capturing life, beauty and art. If you are ever given the opportunity, I highly recommend this production. The sets are incredible, the costumes magnificent and the quality of the performances extraordinary. Not being a dancer, the grace and poise of the dancers amazed me with every turn, jump, point, or move. They have incredible strength and stamina and their dedication to ballet was evident. Periodically I will post images from my recent experience with the ballet. I hope the images give you a flavor for the production, or perhaps inspire you or your little one to dance.
