Perform

This past June, Cadence Progressive Contemporary Ballet performed as a part of the 2012 Guelph Contemporary Dance Festival. Their outdoor performance was brought indoors due to rain, and my late arrival forced me to sit up front with the media photographers. I'm normally a 'back of the bus' kind of gal, but my prime location gave me access to the best possible vantage.  This photo was snapped on my iPhone using TiltShift Gen, a free and surprisingly impressive app that allows for saturation and contrast adjustments, as well as vignetting. One lucky shot was transformed into a complex study in light, movement and contrast. I'm particularily pleased with the composition and colour; how the warm textured floor plays against the cool, angular dancers. (and look at those legs!) "Perform" was selected to be a part of the guelPhonography exhibition at Guelph Civic Museum, which runs until November 18. You've got a bit of time...go have a look!
