This is from a photo I took at the Goodwood Revival of people swing dancing. The day was sunny so the marquee was bright and colourful. I’m a bit disappointed with this outcome as the bright colours give a cartoon feel to it. Also, a characteristic of this dancing is that the men dance on light feet with bent legs. The proportions of the left-most man are not right, and that suggests that all the figures have too-short legs! Frustrating. In isolation, I’m pleased with the couple in the foreground as I think I’ve captured their easy interaction and movement.
This is from an old picture of one of my favourite bands. The figures gel as a group and I think I’ve captured the atmosphere of a small music venue, but again it feels a bit cartoonish.
