Sattriya and Semi Classical Dance

This April in Melbourne, I had the chance to photograph lots of events. One of it was Rongelli Bihu as you have already known. In the celebration event of the Victoria Asamese Community, there were dance performances.

Due to the poor lighting conditions and changing of the stage lighting colors, it was very hard, to capture good images. What is more, speed of the dances, made taking of sharp photographs impossible.

At the end I decided to go on with the auto settings. Canon 550D camera and 70-200mm with the image stabiliser and the sports mode. Without any monopod or tripod, I had to use high ISO.

 

I tried some more post production in Photo Shop

Although they are not editorial quality stage photographs, some of them are so dramatic, with interesting light effects.

You can view the other images on my facebook page. I hope you enjoy them.
