    Belly Dancer

    A belly dancer from LA. A friend told me that I need to inject more action/energy into my shots, so I'm now working on that.

    Comments are welcome.

    GB,

    Interesting photo but I feel there is something wrong but not my area of expertise so take this at face value.

    I think it needs to be a complete body shot and possibly at a lower shutter speed to get some movement, the material on her head looks like a fancy hat and to posed.

    Perhaps pulling back a bit and getting blurred material, arms or legs would help.

    Re: Belly Dancer

    Thanks Roger. I agree that it would have been better if I had the whole body in. Motion a bit dicier: it depends on her speed of twist, distance from camera, zoom level, etc. on how good a shot you get. Motion can make it look so extra dimensional, but blur in the wrong spot can also ruin a shot. Alas, I will try it next time to see if can get a feel for the technicalities.

    The shot may also be a tad flat in lighting. She liked it, anyway.
