What’s more difficult: dance a tango or take good shots of people dancing?
I love photos from concerts, shows and plays, and I’ve done some concerts (here and here, for example). However, since university I know I have to improve my skills in order to have a bigger variety of great shots in these cases – changing lights and fast movements are still a challenge for me (hopefully, I’ll be working on it soon).
In Buenos Aires, last August, we’ve been at the traditional Cafe Tortoni – a place with a wonderful atmosphere for having a churros con chocolate, or even a simple coffee. They also have tango shows, not so pompous as other venues in Buenos Aires, but we decided to have a go there. It was really nice, but I couldn’t avoid releasing the shutter lots of times (oh, Gosh, what a shame!).
Honestly, I haven’t looked at those photos carefully yet, but I had the most recent film from my Lomo developed some weeks ago! I hadn’t many hopes that I could get any shot from the tango show with such a simple camera and film… But at least one of them (below) impressed me.
