N.Kama ' Dancing Couple ' New York, 2007

Yeah Royal Bride & Royal Groom getting their groove on on their traditional marriage...07-07-07.  He was a better dancer than her.... :p....Yup! I also shot film as well on that day. K2 on my left SD on my right.

This frame: Canon EOS K2, 35mm Film - BW400CN


Inspiration for the shot: Malick Sidibe * * * Images

Aside our portfolios, Sidibe was one of the photographers Prof. Boon assigned us to write about, the other 3 were Brassai, Irving Penn and Clarence H. White. We were to compare and constrast their subjects (women), each photographer had them in different expressions. I'm highly motivated by Sidibe's work, his captures are the type of things I find interesting to shoot. I like Sidibe's photographs as it is very energetic & socially full of life.

Their outfits work really well in black and white. What intense patterns!
Nacha Kama: Thaks Jewlya
This is a real good shot. Nice outfits, Love it.
Nacha Kama: Thanks Sesan
Nice but I know you can do alot better than this. I like the composition and arrangement but this is imo a "careful shot" I'm sure they really got down on the dance floor....where are those shots? Lets see the expressions on the faces that show the joy of the couple etc.
Nacha Kama: Enjoy the film now...U sef
These two young and vibrant dancers...they ROCK!!!
nice, nice, you captured the event as you saw it.
Nacha Kama: Yes o...Thanks Dotun!

Lovely capture.
Nacha Kama: Thanks Otto
Malick Sidibé was a new one to me. I have been checking him out and it is easy to see the attraction. His shots are so full of life.
Brassai is one of my favourites. Irving Penn is good but can be a bit sterile. When he gets playful, he makes some really good shots.

This shot is a good Sidibé inspired shot. I love the joy in it and even in B&W it looks colourful.
Nacha Kama: Am Glad that whenever you come here you take your time to read. Brassai is a bang, I can't wait to go into paris and do a remix of his type of shots, however I did a few here in New York...so stay tuned...Lol wink
Fantastic, this, simply fantastic!
Nacha Kama: Thanks alot!

I would love to attend a traditional wedding. It looks like lots of fun and good music!
Love your capture, Nacha.
Superb detail. Great capture of the tonal range. The highlights look almost luminous. An excellent social document, too.
