I find photographing the ballet just as relaxing and enjoyable as watching even on the days when I have a mini Ballet 101 photography class that pops up in the theater's first row with eager students(not really my students just a few local photographers) asking me questions on how to set their cameras when you have moving subjects under ever changing lights that aren't really that bright against a dark backdrop. Well I've created my own method and when I shoot the camera's on manual and each image is in sync with the dancers as if the camera is moving on stage with them. I have thousands of images but these two just speak to me the most.
