I shot this photo during a live show at the Teatro Mella in Havana, Cuba.
Celeidy is one of the senior dancers of Compañía Santiago Alfonso in Havana.

Excellent stage shot considering the awkward lighting.

@Curly: Thanks Curly. Why do you consider it awkward lighting?
beautiful capture of a beautiful dancer!

Is it not constantly changing with differing colours and intensities?

@Curly: Yes this is true for the whole show and it is quite difficult to keep up with the light changes. The way that worked best for me was to shoot in manual mode and change my shutter speed or aperture on the fly as the light changed.
In this particular shot the lighting really wasn't changing though. I just had to try and keep up with her fast movements across the stage. I find shooting live dance shows to be very difficult but I really enjoy the challenge of trying to get some good shots.
Thanks again for all your comments Curly.
