But Oh! for the days of classic ballet photography! Where a dancer could simply stand in her gloriously ornate costume and still cause a stirring in your heart:
Ornate and GIGANTIC. Did I mention gigantic?
How many modern dancers have even
worn a costume big enough that you can't
get through the door?
I ask you.
Or better yet: lean subtly against the wall. Cuz mama don't need to be supporting her own weight for this whooooole dang long exposure. Walls were invented for a reason, right? Use 'em.
