Animation: Belly Dancers in the Park at Night

2 girls belly dancing, outdoors, night

Watch Them Wiggle

There are probably, another 500 images of belly dancing in last night's files.

Only eight were selected for development, to create this GIF.

Festival lighting, at night, presents some real challenges for cameramen.

A sturdy tripod was used and, I sat where one floodlight was directly behind me.

Normally, I'm peering through the viewfinder, while making manual adjustments to exposure.

Once, I was satisfied with the focus and camera settings, I backed away from the viewfinder.

Looking at the girl on the left, I watched closely, at the shadows and light.

And, only pressed the shutter, when I liked, what I was seeing.

That might help explain, why there are so many belly dancing photos, left to process.
