Photo of the Week #140
This shot is from the Rockette Summer Intensive, a week-long program that offers aspiring professional dancers the unique opportunity to train with the Radio City Rockettes as well as a Rockette Director/Choreographer, and learn their world-famous precision dance technique. One of the best programs for Rockette hopefuls, the Summer Intensive has produced 47 Rockettes over ten seasons.
Like last week’s POTW, modern camera technology helped me capture the image I envisioned. With my Canon 5D Mark III’s Live View mode, I was able to shoot with the camera resting on the floor and use the rear LCD to see my exact framing. That feature, combined with the outstanding high-ISO performance of this new camera, allowed me to create the crisp, low-angle image you see below.
Photo tech specs: Canon 5D Mark III camera, 16-35mm f2.8 lens @ 16mm, f4.0, 1/200th, ISO 2500.
