This last weekend I was the photographer for a local Country/Americana festival called Neck Fest at Sacramento institution the Torch Club. I knew that the bands would have people up dancing and had the idea to try out some long-exposure shots of the dancers on the floor in front of the bands in hopes of conveying the kinetic energy of the event. I used a table as the tripod (Also a large candle holder on the table to get a bit more height, I may get a tabletop tripod for future attempts of this type) and a JJC shutter release with my X-E1 and 18-55. Most are 1/sec exposures. I attempted a variety of exposure lengths. In hopes of having more blur and being able to see the band better I tried a longer 2 sec exposure here. I liked it some, but didn't like how bright the background was whereas the 1/sec ones retained the lighting of the venue. I like how the beer glass in the foreground of this one has my reflection in it.
