Ballet Gala Portraits

Posted: March 23, 2017 by Judy Licht Photography in Uncategorized

Photographing events requires shooting a lot of groups.  The challenge there is to capture or engineer a cohesiveness that shows a connectedness.  You want people to look at the picture years later and say, I looked happy, I looked good, that was a fun experience to be together.  There’s a lot of math involved.  The number of people, the number of rows of people, the vantage point, the aperture and shutter speed, the exposures left on your memory card.  And then when there are no groups, I wander around, taking in the glitter of the decorations, reflections of candles in wine glasses, and faces, and I focus, inhale, and push the button.  Here are a few from a ballet fundraiser.CA8A0294-EditCA8A0393-EditCA8A0384-Edit

My wonderful friend, Lena Frumin, is celebrating the end of her very successful show at Soapstone Market.  I love how she shows mothers are mothers no matter what their culture, skin tone, clothes.   She will have more protest paintings, so stop by the market at 4465 Connecticut Avenue on March 31st from 5-8 pm.

County Executive Isiah Leggett and his wife enjoyed an apolitical evening, celebrating with the dancers, teachers, and family of the Maryland Youth Ballet artists.

Wonderful benefit for the Maryland Youth Ballet.  Fun night, dancers modeled their hand made tutus on the runway, and guests enjoyed themselves eating, drinking, and posing for pictures at a photo booth.  The dancers were all elegant and fun to photograph.

My friend Lena Frumin has the most egalitarian eye on the planet.  Her art focuses on the moment.  Her colors, her energy, her insight are optimistic, realistic, concerned about the guy who doesn’t quite fit in, yet hopeful that coming together and sharing ideas and talents will overcome challenging times.  Here is a beautiful new painting she is showing at our wonderful neighborhood market and bar, Soapstone, on upper Connecticut Avenue near UDC.  Thanks to Tracy Stannard and John Fielding for recognizing Lena’s talent and for enthusiastically showing her art.  Lena’s work is on display — perfect venue, yummy home made food, craft beers, wines, pastries — so check it out.  I will be posting more paintings and we are planning a get together later in the month.  Stay posted.
