    Default BellyDancer in Motion

    Our photo club got a belly dancer in as a special treat for our Xmas meetup, and she kindly danced for all the photographers for one dance and allowed us to shoot her at the well lit end of the hall

    I decided to experiment with using my flash and *not* using my flash and seeing what I got as a result, and I had some really cool images out of it







    The rest of the pix are up on my Flickr site - or check out this post on my blog http://lensaddiction.wordpress.com/2...cer-in-motion/

    I really like that first one - has a real sense of movement that using flash would not have captured.

    I really like it too - did you notice she has no feet and really looks like she is floating - a bellydance fairy

    Is that using the on camera flash? Or an external one (that I dont have?)

    Onboard one should work within onboard flash's limitations.

    Probably a custom function flash -> second curtain.

    I used my 350d's onboard for this shot:



    The flash 'fixes' in place the moving object at the end of the frame (before the shutter closes), with this shot I would have prefered to have an off body speedlight behidn the tree on the right(which is cloned in from a non flash shot..)

    Ooooh thats a cool picture! I think I had my camera set at 2nd curtain for flash - I know I set it like that a while ago when taking some dance pix - will have to check. I thought it was to pickup more of the background - didn't realise you could use it for special FX
