My stepdaughter Caroline, her neighbor friend Josie and I went to a daddy daughter dance last night.
Caroline and Josie spent the majority of the time dancing together so instead of making forced conversation with some random dad, I spent the majority of my time photographing them.
Several times during the dance, the DJ turned on an ultra-fast strobe light.
I must have shot 100 frames while the strobe was pulsating.
I experimented with different shutter speed and aperture combinations.
Of all my attempts only one frame worked. But like we say in the newspaper business, you only need one.
I am not sure who the girl is but hopefully her parents won’t be too upset that I turned her into a six-headed dancing machine.
For those of you that are interested in the technical side of photography, the settings were 1/3rd of a second at f/8 at 800 iso.
