San Antonio Regional Marching Auxiliaries (Boerne, Texas)
Wow, what a day. Saturday, 27 Feb 2010, the Boerne-Champion High School Charms Dance organization hosted 40+ teams at the San Antonio Regional Marching Auxiliaries at Champion High School in Boerne, Texas. It was their second year and the success of the first year must have gotten around as almost twice as many teams showed up, including one from California.
Me? I was up at 5:30am for setup at the gym. Starting at 9am, and for the next ten hours, I shot killer dance routines and that was just in one of two gyms. I was able to use a Nikon SB-900 speedlight, but was limited in where I could place it(and me), so still lots of post-processing to do....on 3500 images! With more than three days notice definitely think lighting and workflow could be improved with some Radio Poppers and/or two to four AlienBees or more SB-900s. ;-)
As always you can see everything at ralphmawyerphotography.com,.
Even after a day of dancing the energy in the auditorium was undiminished as reflected in this dancer doing a flip over a trusting group of friends...twice! The second time he cleared 10 bodies....and stuck the landing.
