I had the pleasure of being a secondary photographer alongside John Richard Pena and Bryan Angeles about a week for the Ballroom Dancesport competition hosted by Rutgers at the College Avenue Gym. Unlike other dance events I have covered, this was the first time I shot subjects that were constantly moving around the floor. “But it’s dance…they’re always moving…” you might say. But when they’re on the dance floor and not a stage, finding the right perspective is difficult, needing to re-evaluate one’s angle and positioning of the camera and strobe. Couple that with dim gymnasium fluorescents and you have yourself a big challenge to tackle. Fortunately it’s what makes photography all the more interesting. Once you get the basics down, lighting and timing is key to getting the shot.
