I chose this title because the last thing you expect your four-year-old daughter to say is: ‘Are we going to my production today?’ Noor joined a ballet class a few weeks ago, and today she played the starring, leading role of a little flower.
In a weekend that’s about nothing but the ballot paper, ours began at the Ballet. When my wife told me about it I thought it was going to be little children only – but it’s actually students of the academy from all levels and ages. They came together to make what in my opinion was a wonderful production of Cinderella. I’m not an art critic but it was genuinely a good experience and some of the participants showed real talent.
I have so much to learn about photography in low light. It was a real challenge to keep the camera steady, control the exposure, the shutter speed and ISO. The results were not great – but still worth sharing. I will try to learn more and practice before Noor’s next adventure.
