Night Performances

Night Performances are always a challenge, even with the best equipment. 
There is sporadic light, lots of movement and I'm limited with mobility and angles to shoot from.  However, there is the spontaneous quality and excitement that happens in the moment!   Skill and luck help to make good images happen, so wish me luck!  'Return to the Light' runs through December 19th with performances in Spanish and English.

 Here is a dance performance of a creation story.

Dancer in Air

Sometimes I've a hard time deciding if I like an image in color or back and white...
Actually this is a warm toned 'black and white' image, as I almost never do grayscale!
Always looks better to follow a special 'recipe' of color balance and channel paths in digital processing to find just the right balance. 

So happy to be photographing dancers again! It is a special love since in the past I was a dancer myself.  The soul and grace of movement is especially wonderful in photography. Maybe because it all goes by so fast for a viewer to absorb? Perhaps. 
Photography stops a fraction of a second with a lasting image that and looks back at you.

Looking forward to more dance work as the production photographer for a new play begins "Return of the Light".  There is a magic that happens in rehearsal time without the stress of a performance which I like... more playful and fun. Will keep you posted!

Full Moonrise, Pagosa Springs, Colorado

Enlightenment is like the moon reflected in water
The moon does not get wet, nor is the water broken
Although its light is wide and great
The moon is reflected even in a puddle an inch wide
The whole moon and the entire sky
Are reflected in one dewdrop on the grass.

Photography and New Blogs

Epiphyte (air plant)

I enjoy working with like-minded people when doing photography and 
graphic design. Recently have been making posts for my friend Virginia on Permaculture.
 She creates beautiful and wholesome environments in the Todos Santos Oasis (BCS)
following natural methods that nourish the earth and soul.
More to come, but for a 'sneak peak' of some photographs, class schedules
and ideas check out:

Art and Poetry

What lies behind us

and what lies before us

Are tiny matters

compared to what lies

within us.

Love Overcomes Fear...

Love Overcomes Fear
Presence Overcomes Death

A moment to last

A moment to last a lifetime ....
