After a relatively quiet period, this week has seen my second outing to photograph a local club event. Tonight I was back at Eclipse Gymnastics and this time for something a little different.
There is no doubt that the gymnasts are all very talented in their sport, but this evening proved that they also have talents in other areas and we were treated to singers, dancers, musicians and a comedy magic trick routine that had everyone in stitches. Have you ever tried taking photographs in very low light whilst giggling – it’s hard.
All of the participants did really well but it was Henry playing the violin that stole the show and one the accolade for best performance. His piece which was accompanied by backing music was wonderful and he played it entirely from memory. It was a joy to listen to and watch. He was, in my mind, a very worthy winner.
As usual the light was atrocious in the club’s hall, in fact it was lower than usual. This meant me pushing the camera and my skills to the absolute limit. Some of the images are a little grainy and soft but the gallery is now being uploaded to www.m4photo.co.uk for all of the club members to view and purchase .jpg files and prints. The usual commission will be paid to the club for all photographs bought over the next 90 days.
Finally, well done to everyone at Eclipse Gymnastics who were involved with organizing yet another flawless and great evening of entertainment.
