|The shoes are dance shoes and the clear band you see across the instep is to keep the shoe snug and in place.|
Tonight, I went to Marcel's dance party.
I wore this black lace thrifted dress (Valerie Bertenelli). The black lace is a nod to a post by Veshoevius and her tribute to black lace.
Nothing screams feminine like black lace.
Marcel gave me some photos that one of his students shot at the last comp.
Overall, I'm pleased with them...but there are still things that need to be addressed!
I'm grateful that I have a few friends who were able to get shots of me. I'm happy to have the opportunity to learn from my mistakes, captured in still pictures.
The professional competition photographer has been complaining about amateur photographers at the comp taking photos and infringing on their business. Its possible that the next comp may ban cameras. That would be too bad, because I would just have to do without photos in that case. I just can't see paying the ridiculous prices charged by the pros, who may get 1 or two decent shots and a few others that are usually not good. I have gotten better photos from my friends with cameras!
I promise that this is the last batch of photos from this last competition. I'm done competing for the year....my next one is in February and that's a big one for me; The Indiana Challenge, my favorite.
