Well the plan for the weekend was thrown out slightly on Friday and the usual Eclipse Xmas Show dress rehearsal was regretfully missed but I arrived bright and early at the Pemberton Centre in Rushden, East Northants on Saturday. I’d been invited back to photograph their latest show and it would prove to be a massive hit.
Now that Ellie is not part of the Acro squad and only gets to the club when she can, and under her own steam (Dad’s taxi service is no longer required), I don’t get to see the practice sessions so learning that the format this year would be brand new was a surprise.
There would be no breaks between squads performing, no breaks in the audio track, just one track for part one and another for the second half of the show. So, no chance to rethink camera settings, no chance to check memory cards, it was just a full on session x 3.
Anyway, the show was a massive success and congratulations to everyone that helped to prepare and stage the show and a huge well done to all of the gymnasts who put on a wonderful show yet again. I only hope that I have done the club justice in the photographs captured during the three performances.
All of the photographs are now available on www.m4photo.co.uk in the Eclipse Gymnastics club photo gallery. You’ll need the username and password which is only available from the club’s officials. Sorry, but my own child protection policy does not permit me to supply the login details to anyone. If you are associated with the club, you’ll know who and where to ask for the details.
I hope that you all enjoy the images.
