Hi Ade,
Do you work in a circus?, because this is a great balancing act!
Nothing like using an F1.8 lens for shallow DOFSmile

Your exif isn't picking up the flash Sad What strength flash output did you use - this is indeed to me a fabulous balancing act with the f/stop you were using.

It's off camera flash Anne - so was on manual, probably at 1/32 power I'd guess, you don't need much when you're shooting wide open.

Flash was a 580EX

Had a shoot through brolly on

in this recession, I've got more spare time than I'd like... Sad

Still - if you can spend it photographing enthusiastic young dancers like Eleni, it's not such a bad thing Smile
