We are well into the 2015 season of ballroom dance events! Last week we released the photos from the 2015 Maryland Dancesport Championships. I was overall very pleased with those images. As can be seen, it was great to make a new set of awesome images from the dance floor. With the new images coming online, it is time for some of last year’s collections to expire. Today is the last day to view and purchase photos from the 2014 DC Dance Challenge. To see the photos one final time, you can visit the TimeLine Media proofing site here:
This was second year that the event was held in the Atrium Ballroom of the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center. If you have never seen this amazing structure, you need to pay it a visit! Located in the heart of Federal Buildings in downtown Washington, DC, it is a perfect setting for an event with “DC” in the name. Right on Pennsylvania Avenue, the dancers were set in a large ballroom that projected the strength and grandness associated with city.
For this one-day competition we saw a lot of familiar faces. Being local to the DC area, it was great to see friends out on the dance floor to show off their new dance loops, costumes, and what they have been working on over the past year. Jennifer and Fabio Bonini, the organizers of the competition, ran it very smoothly. We ran on time and had great accommodations throughout the day. There were no stops in the action, and the decorations for the evening, really set it apart for the Showcase competition and Professional exhibition.
I personally grabbed a lot of images that I am keeping in my portfolio. It is a different looking ballroom from most that we cover. It does mean that there are some changes that have to be made to the lighting setup, but it is a nice challenge to work through. I like having photos that are still my style in terms of how the dancers look towards the camera, but having a little different light falling on them just to give the eye something different to see. I hope you enjoy these, and will come back for more events that are on the schedule soon!
