A photo lesson and look back at Uarts Spring Dance Concert – Program B

So Sunday I decided to check out Program B of Uarts Spring Dance Series with works by Netta Yerushalmy, Nicholas Leichter, Roni Koresh, Katie Swords Thurman & Jesse Zaritt, Jen McGinn and Tommie-Waheed Evans. Wasn’t going to shoot but decided to snap a few shots (after getting permission) for a new column. But first a couple quick photo lessons…

Always as a performance photographer ask permission to shoot. This means asking permission of the choreographer/company if it’s their show or if say a showcase or school performance the person in charge of the program. I’ve seen before where during a showcase a person photographing was popping into the aisle and back into their seat while in the front row which was distracting to the audience and though approved by the choreographer was not by the presenter. Always ask for approval to shoot and choreographers if showing work in a showcase be sure to clear your photographer/videographer with the presenter. And the other lesson? Angles are hit or miss, at times they can provide a really unique viewpoint and while other times it means not having a clear view of the action as it unfolds. For this Uarts performance since shooting during the show I usually would get front row center but since already full with audience I decided to go to the side aisle seating and shoot on an angle. First and foremost the audience and their enjoyment is key. Didn’t get all the shots I wanted, sometimes angles work and sometimes they don’t but did get some cool shots which I have included below.

Uarts has one more show for their Spring Dance Series, Program C, May 1st and 2nd at 7pm. For now enjoy this look back at Program B.
