Week 51 – #23. Orton Effect

The interior of the Sarasota Opera House is a beautiful building of great interest and history.  If you have never attended an opera or ballet there, I would encourage you to do so but beforehand read about its history and renovations here.   It’s a place where dreams are fulfilled and because of that, I have processed it with the dreamy “Orton Effect.”

Week 6 – #22. Group Portraits

Mostly, my photography interests lie in landscapes, street photography and macro. I have never given much thought to taking group portraits and was troubled as to what I could photograph to satisfy that theme. However, as noted in my previous post, I attended the Sarasota Cuban Ballet School’s performance recently and, although I was not certain it was permissible, I took my camera and managed to snap a few decent shots from my seat high in the balcony. After cropping, and with a little help from Photoshop, I am not too unhappy with this photo.  Click the photo for an enlarged view.

Week 5 – #2. Below The Knees

This week I chose to post a photograph I took at the Sarasota Opera House during the Sarasota Cuban Ballet School’s “On Stage” performance. What transpires below the knees is but one part of a fully integrated and graceful ballet movement. The level of talent and artistry of the students who participated in the school’s recently concluded summer intensive workshop was beyond extraordinary. For the first time in 60 years, students from the Cuban National Ballet School were allowed to dance in the United States. This is the first of what is hoped will be an annual exchange between the Sarasota Cuban Ballet School and the Cuban National Ballet School and a more harmonious relationship with Cuba.
